EAN Summer 2023 Intern Cohort

This summer, for the fourth year in a row, EAN Senior Fellow Christine Donovan managed and advised two interns who conducted research projects on Vermont climate and energy topics. Our 2023 interns were Evelyn Hatem, who researched the social costs of greenhouse gases and their implications for Vermont climate policy, and Josh Valentine, who researched opportunities and challenges for accelerating Vermont’s heat pump market. See below for a video of their presented research findings, and a page for each of their own bios, reports, and slideshows.
