Abdeali Saherwala is a second year, Master’s in Environmental Management student who is specializing in Energy, Business and Policy. For the summer, he worked as a Clean Energy Policy and Finance Analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). He worked on three main projects such as integrating Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) and Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) together to create a more robust program. Additionally, he worked on deploying clean energy projects in Indigenous territories and worked on improving energy efficiency in wastewater treatment facilities throughout the United States. Furthermore, Abdeali is working as a fact checker for Yale Environment 360 in which he enjoys scrutinizing over facts and figures from articles written by various scholars. Finally, he is currently working as a Student Writer for the Clean Energy Finance Forum (CEFF) in which he has written articles about green bonds and the rapid increase in renewable energy deployment in Republican states. Abdeali is excited to be part of the Yale Center for Business and the Environment. His plan is to get involved in the deployment of clean energy from a finance and business perspective, after his MEM degree. Ideally, his passion is to work in clean energy finance in developing countries as the impact of it will be much larger, considering that energy poverty and climate mitigation are huge issues in developing countries.
