Alumni Nate Hultman

Prof. Hult­man is cur­rently on leave from the Uni­ver­sity. He is serv­ing as Deputy Asso­ciate Direc­tor for Energy & Cli­mate Change in the White House Coun­cil on Envi­ron­men­tal Qual­ity. After this gov­ern­ment ser­vice, he will return to the School of Pub­lic Pol­icy and the Joint Global Change Research Institute.

Prof. Hult­man is Direc­tor of Envi­ron­men­tal Pol­icy pro­gram at the Uni­ver­sity of Mary­land School of Pub­lic Pol­icy, and teaches courses on cli­mate change, energy pol­icy, and global envi­ron­men­tal prob­lems. He is also Asso­ciate Direc­tor of the Joint Global Change Research Insti­tute, a col­lab­o­ra­tion between the Uni­ver­sity of Mary­land and the Pacific North­west National Lab­o­ra­tory. His research focuses on energy tech­nol­ogy tran­si­tions in emerg­ing economies; clean tech­nol­ogy inno­va­tion; inter­na­tional cli­mate pol­icy; and pri­vate sec­tor deci­sions to under­take low-​​carbon invest­ments. Cur­rent research projects focus on energy and cli­mate poli­cies in Brazil, India, South Korea, South Africa, Swe­den, and the US. He has par­tic­i­pated in the UN cli­mate process since the Kyoto meet­ing, and is a con­tribut­ing author to the IPCC Fifth Assess­ment Report and Spe­cial Report on Renew­able Energy. Until Feb 2014, Prof. Hult­man was also a Non­res­i­dent Senior Fel­low at the Brook­ings Insti­tu­tion, Pro­gram in Global Econ­omy and Development
