Elizabeth Brooke Stein

Senior Manager, New York Clean Energy Law & Policy


Areas of expertise: Energy efficiency, smart grid

Elizabeth Brooke Stein is an attorney in EDF’s Clean Energy Program, focusing on the development of a low-carbon energy system.

Elizabeth has focused on energy in buildings in New York City, and has worked with the City and other public and private parties to address barriers to creating a durable market for energy efficiency. In this role, she helped design and support innovations relating to energy efficiency finance, such as On-Bill Repayment and EDF’s Investor Confidence Project. Elizabeth has also engaged in state, regional and federal proceedings to advocate for the promulgation of technology and practices that improve the flexibility and performance of the electric system, and enable the full deployment of more low-carbon resources, including low-carbon demand response and intermittent renewable resources.

Since 2012, Elizabeth and her colleagues in EDF’s New York office have been working to ensure that the post-Sandy transformation of New York’s electric system is built on a foundation of resiliency and sustainability, not just durability.


Prior to coming to EDF, Elizabeth was a transactional real estate attorney.
