Stephen Abbott

Sr. Associate


Stephen works with the Communities, Industry and Electricity practices at RMI. He is particularly interested in developing and advancing new business models that enable all parties to understand and capture the value of distributed resources, large-scale renewables, and energy efficiency. Since joining RMI in August 2013, Stephen has helped universities design a roadmap to achieve carbon neutrality, studied innovative business models and cost-reduction opportunities for distributed solar, and helped design and launch the Institute’s broader university programs.


Stephen comes to RMI from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, where he focused his attention on renewable energy and sustainability. As a vice-president of Tuck’s Net Impact Chapter and the Dartmouth Energy Collaborative, he organized company visits, educational discussions, and seminars to keep fellow students informed about new developments in the energy industry. In order to develop an understanding of renewable energy development, Stephen spent his summer at Apex Clean Energy in Charlottesville, VA. In addition, Stephen participated in the 2012 and 2013 Ross Renewable Energy Case Competitions, where his team was awarded 4th and 3rd place respectively.

Prior to attending graduate school, Stephen spent four years at an economic consulting firm, where his work focused on understanding and analyzing the financial impacts of corporate decisions.  During this time, Stephen developed analytical, programming, and communication skills within a highly rigorous, academic environment. His project experience ranged across a number of industries, including mutual funds, financial services, pharmaceuticals and entertainment.
