Make an Impact this Summer
About EDF Climate Corps
EDF Climate Corps is an innovative summer fellowship program that places top-tier graduate students within organizations as dedicated energy problem solvers. Working directly with staff from operations, finance and sustainability departments, EDF Climate Corps fellows spend 10 weeks as organizational change agents for energy management. Past host organizations have included Apple, Google, General Motors, REI, AT&T, the City of Boston and Howard University.
Since 2008, EDF Climate Corps fellows have identified $1.2 billion in total net operational costs and opportunities to cut $1.7 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, equivalent to the annual energy use of 150,000 homes.
