The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) has recently added a new member to the U.S. team.
Jessica Shipley, most recently a senior policy analyst with the Oregon Department of Energy, will be supporting RAP’s work on climate-related issues, utility regulatory policy, energy efficiency, integrated resource planning, and other energy policy topics. She will be working with regulators, policymakers, NGOs, and other stakeholders to provide policy support to decision-makers in the U.S.
“Jessica brings strong insight and skills, and varied experience at the intersection of environmental and energy policy—we are very pleased she is joining RAP,” said Rich Sedano, RAP’s U.S. programs director.
During the roughly three years she worked with the state of Oregon, Ms. Shipley was the agency’s lead analyst and advisor on climate and energy policy issues. She conducted technical analyses of energy strategies for meeting climate goals and participated in multi-state efforts to coordinate policy and regulatory action.
Before working for the state of Oregon, Ms. Shipley was a senior advisor on energy and environmental policy at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. Prior to her work at the British Embassy, Ms. Shipley managed the state and federal climate program at the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, now the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions.
Ms. Shipley holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental economics and a master’s degree in public policy from the University of California, Berkeley. She is based in Portland, Oregon and can be reached at [email protected].
RAP is an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organization dedicated to accelerating the transition to a clean, reliable, and efficient energy future.
