Jeremy’s interest in renewable energy began after graduating from Haverford College in Pennsylvania, where he studied history, urban planning and economics. He then started a biochar business in the coffeelands of Guatemala, Solcomb, utilizing agricultural refuse to make usable fuel to fight high indices of indoor asthma.
In 2013 he received a Professional Certificate in Residential and Commercial PV system design at Solar Energy International in Colorado. Most recently, he completed a Master of Science in Construction Management with a specialization in Occupational Safety and Health at the University of Washington in Seattle, through the assistance of a Fellowship through the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
Jeremy’s passion for cleantech has taken him from projects ranging from the remote Palmyra Atoll, where he optimized a very early containerized renewable energy microgrid that powered the entire research station, to solar pumping solutions for off-grid applications.
In his spare time he enjoys hiking, sailing, listening to music, reading history and fiction and trying out new recipes from scratch.
