I’m excited to welcome Jessi Wyatt to the Great Plains Institute team as an associate energy planner and analyst. In her role, Jessi will provide technical and analytical support to a variety of projects and programs with a focus on local energy and climate action planning and geospatial analysis. Jessi will also assist with carbon capture and storage modeling and with strategic mapping for policy initiatives, including transportation electrification.
Jessi shared that she is eager to continue her work with climate and resilience planning, and to continue helping communities develop ways for local and state governments—as well as smaller-scale actors—to convene and make change while ensuring equitable experience of climate mitigation benefits. She is equally enthusiastic to provide analytic assistance across GPI program areas to help better understand and inform large-scale GHG emission reduction and decarbonization efforts.
Jessi began working at GPI in 2017 as an intern. Before joining GPI, Jessi worked at the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs as a GIS analyst and has experience in land use and comprehensive planning. Jessi has a master’s degree in urban and regional planning with a minor in GIS from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, and a BS in environmental sciences, policy, and management from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences at the University of Minnesota.
Please join me in welcoming Jessi to GPI and learn more about her on our staff page.
