Dr. Gavin Dillingham, Program Director for Clean Energy Policy at HARC, is accepted as a participant in the 2018 Yale Sustainability Leadership Forum held at Yale University October 9 – 12, 2018.

In addition to serving as Program Director, Dr. Dillingham is also Director of the US DOE’s Southwest Combined Heat and Power TAP. Dr. Dillingham joined HARC in 2012 where he leads research and program efforts focusing on improving the climate resilience of the electric power infrastructure and built environment.

Dr. Dillingham has worked in the clean energy industry for the last twenty years in both the private and public sector. Much of this work focused on climate action planning, greenhouse gas mitigation strategies and strategic energy management for large institutions and cities.

Team-taught, the Yale Sustainability Leadership Forum is organized around modules that each provide in-depth topical study, and brings together a diverse set of thought leaders, industry practitioners, policy experts, and scholars working on the leading edge of sustainability.

The forum is modeled directly on Forum Director’s Professor Dan Esty's course, “Sustainability: Environment, Energy, and the Economy in the 21st Century,” and builds on the vision of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy (YCELP) to incorporate fresh thinking and analytically rigorous decision making into environmental law and policy.
