Katherine worked as an Analyst with Ecogy Solar over the summer of 2017, and played a role in several aspects of the business, notably in asset management, project development, and project finance. She started her days off with assessing the performance of Ecogy’s portfolio, then depending on the pipeline, she helped out on a range of project development and finance tasks, including running energy analyses, updating the team on relevant local, regional and federal solar policy changes, and designing solar projects using advanced solar simulation software. She particularly enjoyed assessing the financial viability of projects, and hopes that after gaining more experience in solar-project finance, she can help bring solar to less-developed areas where solar projects are more financially challenging.
