The EDF Climate Corps program demonstrates how rigorous training, on-the-ground analysis, and long-term follow-up can lead to real-world cost and energy savings, while providing unmatched opportunity for critical experiences that lay the groundwork for future careers.
Chris Anderson, who now works in the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, was an EDF Climate Corps fellow at Ahold grocery chain in 2009. He attributes much of his success along his career path to EDF Climate Corps. "Climate Corps was instrumental in solidifying my desire to work in the energy efficiency/renewable energy space. I was offered my dream opportunity at DOE in part on the strength of my experience, much of which I owe to my amazing summer with Climate Corps."
