Sheryl Musgrove is a senior staff attorney at the Pace Energy and Climate Center. She holds a J.D. from the University of Idaho College of Law and an LL.M. in Environmental Law from the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, with specializations in Energy and Climate Change Law and in Global Environmental Law. Sheryl was the 2016-2017 Equitable Access to Sustainable Energy (EASE) Fellow at Pace. She also is a Ph.D. Candidate in Sustainability at Arizona State University. She is admitted to the Idaho State Bar, the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho, and the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

Sheryl coordinates the Center’s engagement on low- to moderate-income (“LMI”) energy and climate change related issues, and the Center’s engagement on the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

In her LMI work, Sheryl seeks to identify key barriers to LMI customer access to sustainable energy, and develop solutions to ensure that LMI customers and communities are able to participate in and get the benefits of New York’s growing clean energy opportunities while also lowering LMI energy burden. Sheryl also engages with coalitions and working groups focused on LMI access to clean and affordable energy, including Energy Efficiency for All New York, a coalition of clean energy and consumer advocacy organizations working to increase low-income customer access to clean and affordable energy.

In her RGGI work, Sheryl actively participates in RGGI program reviews and RGGI-New York stakeholder processes, and engages with coalitions, including the RGGI Advocates, and the New York RGGI Low-Income and Environmental Justice Coalition. Sheryl also engages in research and analyses of how to strengthen and build upon the successes of RGGI, addressing such issues as leakage mitigation, expanding RGGI to cover smaller generators and additional sectors, and the allocation and use of RGGI auction proceeds.

Sheryl also develops regulatory and policy analyses, public comments, and expert testimony for the Center’s positions on additional issues, including the valuing of distributed energy resources, aggregation models such as community choice aggregation, LMI access to community distributed generation, and LMI issues that arise in rulemaking proceedings and utility rate cases.
