MA Energy and Environment, Boston University
Kyle Schultz joined Synapse in the fall of 2022. She provides support on energy-sector issues including energy efficiency policy, program design, and implementation, solar policies, decarbonization, and beneficial electrification. She is a skilled modeler, frequently using Excel to analyze costs of heat pump adoption; state energy use and emissions; and the environmental, economic, and social impact of fossil fuel projects.
Previously, she worked as a consultant for Opinion Dynamics, where she provided research and evaluation expertise for energy efficiency programs. She used the modeling tool AVERT to analyze the emissions impacts of energy efficiency programs and used COBRA to analyze and monetize the impacts of these emissions impacts on public health. She also evaluated the influence of California's state financing programs on commercial and industrial customer decisions to complete energy upgrades.
Ms. Schultz holds a MA in Energy and Environment and a BA in Earth and Environmental Science from Boston University.
