Rob Habermann
EASE Fellow

As the EASE Fellow, Robert focuses on clean energy access issues for low to moderate income communities.  He works to identify key barriers to energy equity and to advance related policy, while engaging with the Pace Energy and Climate Center’s broader clean energy agenda. 


Prior to his position with the Center, Robert worked as a renewable energy project developer for AMP Ventures, with a focus on solar energy in Africa.  Robert concentrated on a first-of-its-kind 30MW distributed generation solar and storage project in Nigeria, while assisting on energy transactions in Ghana, Kenya and Tanzania.  During this time, Robert also developed a containerized, solar powered micro-grid system to be deployed in the most remote communities in West Africa. 


Robert currently serves as an advisor for The Sustainability Laboratory, an NGO based in New York that engages in research, development and educational activities focused on key sustainability-related issues. 


Robert received his J.D. from Washington University in St. Louis and his B.A. in Political Science from Tulane University.  He is currently pursuing an LL.M. in Environmental Law from the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University.
