Gerry George
Research Associate, Cooling & Energy Efficiency

Gerry George has over six years of experience working as a climate change and energy policy professional. Before joining NRDC, he worked with Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy, focusing on high-impact climate action areas such as comfort cooling in buildings, energy efficiency of household appliances, and sustainable cold-chain in developing countries. His work includes leveraging a 360° view of the triple sector (i.e., public, private, and knowledge sectors) to drive evidence-based sustainable energy policymaking and its implementation. Gerry contributed significantly to the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Government of India's India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) 2019 and leveraged the Indian experience to formulate the National Cooling Action Plan methodology which is being piloted globally in countries such as in Cambodia and Indonesia.

His other work focused on assessing food loss reduction, increasing farmers' income, and energy efficiency measures in the Indian cold-chain sector, particularly at the sub-national level. Furthermore, he was part of the initiatives to drive district cooling in India, formulation of the India Cooling Coalition, and implementation of ICAP. He has completed his M.Tech in Energy Systems from the University of Petroleum & Energy Studies in Dehradun.
