Steve has over 30 years of experience evaluating the economics of conventional and renewable energy resources—both central station and distributed generation—within the context of developing technologies, market design, and environmental regulations. Working with major U.S. power companies and developers, he helps evaluate the impact of distributed resources on their systems and the implications for business models and distribution system planning and operations.
Steve publishes numerous whitepapers on the value of solar and distributed resources. His team works tirelessly to develop innovative analytical frameworks that help utilities and third parties accurately assess the value of these resources in the context of system planning. Steve is the lead author of multiple analyses that evaluate the impact of carbon and other environmental policies on the future generation fleet at national and regional levels.
Steve is also a senior fellow with the ICF Climate Center. In this role, he provides compelling research and objective perspectives on a wide range of climate-related topics to help advance climate conversations and accelerate climate action.
