Alison Ong

Researcher (Fulbright Scholar)

Alison is currently visiting the Energy Transition Hub as a Fulbright Scholar.

Alison comes from a multidisciplinary background, drawing from economics, policy, and technical analysis to solve complex environmental problems. Her experiences range from laboratory research on emerging solar technologies at UC Berkeley to political advocacy work in California. Most recently, she was employed as a Consultant in San Francisco at Energy and Environmental Economics, Inc. where she evaluated variable energy generation interactions with the electric grid. Her major projects involved providing expertise on battery storage impacts and deployment for state regulators in California and New York. 

For her Fulbright project, Alison will conduct a comparative study of renewable integration challenges in California and Australia, and the potential for overcoming them using energy storage technologies to moderate variable power generation. She hopes her findings will provide guiding principles for system-wide change that will further dialogue, promote collaboration, and advance action towards a greener future in both California and Australia.
