“We congratulate the 2018 Energy Scholar awardees and look forward to supporting their contributions toward an equitable new energy economy,” said Jennifer Barnes, VP of Operations & Communications at OneEnergy Renewables. “We are also thrilled to have partnered with our long-standing friends at 3Degrees this year.  OneEnergy believes that with both companies working together, the Energy Scholars will enjoy even more career opportunities and experiences. 

The Energy Scholar Program recipients comprise students from esteemed institutions such as Duke, UCLA, University of Michigan, and Yale across the spectrum of renewable energy industry needs, including sustainable energy policy, power system modeling, and renewable thermal technologies.

“We are enjoying getting to know this diverse and talented class of Energy Scholars.” said Adam Capage, vice president of corporate and government affairs at 3Degrees. “Their impressive academic achievements, coupled with steadfast commitment to growing the renewable energy industry makes us optimistic about the future.”

Net Impact, OneEnergy Renewables and 3Degrees would like to congratulate the exemplary dedication these students continue to demonstrate and look forward to seeing the impact they will make on the renewable energy sector.

By expanding our partnership to include 3Degrees, another pioneering organization focused on transitioning towards a low-carbon economy, as well as including the topic of racial diversity at the Energy Scholars conference session, collectively, we’re accelerating our future energy industry leaders in key, relevant ways.
