Kristin Igusky is an Associate in WRI's Global Climate Program. Her work focuses on analyzing policies, programs, and other mechanisms across all levels of government that will help accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy in the United States. This includes options for getting cleaner vehicles on the road, refocusing the U.S. transportation system to reduce congestion and make communities more connected, increasing the flexibility of the power grid system to support more clean energy, and making buildings and manufacturing facilities more energy efficient.
Prior to joining WRI, Kristin worked with SAIC’s climate change services team where she focused on a wide-range of GHG management projects for federal government agencies, local governments, and private sector entities. Projects included supporting the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s national inventory of greenhouse gases, EPA Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program and the EPA Climate Leaders Program, researching issues related to new and existing carbon offsets project types, and developing community-level GHG inventories for cities and counties across the country.
Kristin holds a B.S. in environmental studies from Gettysburg College and a Master of Environmental Management degree from Duke University, where she focused on global environmental change.
