Headshot of Dr. Rob Deconto

Dr Rob DeConto is part of a U-Mass team that has received grants from the NSF EELEVATE program to explore and develop pathways so that the transition to sustainable energy also promotes the socioeconomic equity of communities. The grants will support the training of more than 50 graduate master’s and doctoral students across 10 UMass departments to conduct research at the intersection of electricity technology, energy economics and policy, climate science and social equity, and will produce resilient and equity-driven innovations while developing effective leadership and communication skills ideally suited to engaging stakeholders.  Over 100 graduate students are expected to participate over the course of the program.  Read more...
