Ed, a self-described “energy wonk,” manages Joyce’s energy policy grants. He is committed to advancing energy efficiency as the fastest, cheapest way to reduce global warming pollution in the Midwest—while also cutting energy bills and creating jobs. He knows that a problem as big as climate change requires lots of people pulling in the same direction, so is active in regional and national networks. Ed is co-chair of the board of the Climate and Energy Funders Group and is on the steering committee of the RE-AMP Midwest clean energy policy collaborative.
Before joining Joyce, Ed directed the Legacy Fund, a start-up family foundation based in Chicago that supported work on energy policy in the Midwest and large-scale habitat conservation in North and Central America. Ed was the program director of the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation from the time that organization began operations in 2001 through 2006. There, he oversaw the award of more than $110 million of grants for energy efficiency, renewable energy and natural areas conservation projects throughout Illinois. Previously, Ed worked for nine years in the Environment Program at the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
Ed has a master’s degree in Agricultural and Natural Resource Economics and a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, both from Stanford University. He and his family live in Evanston, where Ed frequently can be found coaching his sons’ soccer teams.
