Caitlin Murphy is a Senior Energy Analyst within the Economics and Forecasting Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Her primary research involves evaluating how technology innovation, end-use electrification, and energy policies could impact the evolution and operation of the U.S. energy system through quantitative analysis methods. In addition, a growing portion of her portfolio is dedicated to resilience analysis, which is focused on measuring the impact and value of resilience investments from the perspective of utilities and grid operators, end-users, and government entities. Prior to joining NREL, Caitlin served as AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow within the Federal government, where she developed legislation to accelerate the deployment of advanced energy storage, renewable energy, and energy efficiency technologies, and contributed to multiple Federal strategy documents, including the DOE’s second installment of the Quadrennial Energy Review and the U.S. Mid-Century Strategy for Deep Decarbonization. Caitlin received her B.S. in Earth Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2007, and her Ph.D. in Geophysics from the California Institute of Technology in 2012.
