Elizabeth Brooke Stein

Senior Manager & Senior Attorney, Energy


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

Elizabeth engages in state and regional 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.


Elizabeth has engaged in advocacy relating to energy in buildings in New York City, working 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.

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