Co-founder of Carbon-Free Europe
As the leader of Third Way’s Climate and Energy Program, a Washington, DC-based think tank, Josh oversees the strategy to advance policies and change the conversation so that the United States gets to net-zero by 2050 as fast and equitably as possible.
Previously, Josh worked at the intersection of politics, advocacy, policy, and technology as a Vice President at GMMB, where he advised the senior leadership of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He also served as the Chief Policy Advisor for Representative Rob Andrews and as Deputy Chief of Staff for Representative Diana DeGette. Since 2009, Josh has led Third Way’s clean energy and climate advocacy efforts, helping establish the program as one of the nation’s top voices on clean energy innovation policy, and using every low and zero-carbon technology to take on climate change. This includes Third Way’s research on advanced technologies, as well as policy and communication on pathways to decarbonize the electricity, transportation, and industrial sectors while creating more jobs and economic opportunities. As part of this work, he regularly advises senior federal and global policymakers, philanthropies, academics, labor, and business leaders.
