We are excited to introduce Maggie Molina, our new branch chief!


We are pleased to welcome Maggie Molina as EPA's Branch Chief of the State and Local Energy and Environment Program. She will lead the program's efforts to provide critical tools, resources and technical assistance for state, local, and tribal stakeholders. 


Maggie previously served as Senior Director for Policy at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), where she had a 15-year career supporting state and local energy efficiency policy. She earned a master of engineering and public policy from the University of Maryland and a bachelor of arts from Colgate University.

New Fellowship Opportunity with the State and Local Energy and Environment Program


EPA’s State and Local Energy and Environment Program has an open Air Quality, Public Health, and Energy Strategies Fellowship position. Our program works cooperatively with state, local, and tribal (S/L/T) governments to help them reduce greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions in ways that meet their own unique environmental, public health, energy, and economic priorities. The research fellow will focus on conducting research to support the development of decision-support resources and tools to help S/L/T governments understand, quantify, and communicate the public health impacts of emission reduction policies and programs.


Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will conduct research at the intersection of energy, climate change, air pollution, and public health, and assist in the development of associated models. The participant may conduct policy analysis using tools such as EPA’s CO-Benefits Risk Assessment (COBRA) tool and Health-Benefits per Kilowatt-hour (BPK) values. Specific research may include:


·    The current state of health benefits inclusion and/or quantification in climate and energy policymaking;

·    Quantitative methods for assessing the health impacts of emission reduction policies, including reduced-form air quality modeling and long-term projections;

·    The equity and environmental justice implications of emissions reduction policies, and best practices for policy/program design;

·    The state of the science/literature on the health implications of electrification strategies; and

·    The indoor environment impacts of energy policies.


Applications are due October 30, 2020.
