Yale students write for CEFF on a wide range of topics from distributed generation to property-assessed clean energy. We focus on news and interviews rather than opinion pieces. Students typically contribute one or two articles per semester, with the opportunity to write more if they are able.

The student writing team researches material for the newsletter, works with the editor to develop original content for the publication, attends conferences to make industry contacts and report on new developments, creates profiles of featured thought leaders in the field and identify new trends and activities in energy efficiency and solar finance.
