Clean industrial policies: A space for EU-US collaboration
By Théophile Pouget-Abadie, Francis Shin, Jonah Allen
EU-US tensions over clean industrial policy could derail the energy transition. Collaboration on equal footing would bolster collective security and drive emissions reductions to new levels.
Jonah Allen was a nonresident fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Europe Center and a research fellow at the Jain Family Institute. He is also a second-year PhD student in mineral and energy economics at the Colorado School of Mines, where he researches water policy, energy markets, and sustainable finance. He previously obtained his BS in environmental studies and certificate in technology business management from UC Santa Barbara, where he focused coursework on renewable energy deployment, water management, and the energy-water nexus. In his senior thesis, he studied the potential for industrial-scale remediation of contaminated brownfield sites using white-rot fungi.
As an undergraduate, Allen complemented his coursework with internships in data analysis for a water management district, market research for software company in renewable energy, and project management for a renewable technology innovation hub. Before beginning the PhD at the Colorado School of Mines, Allen spent two years managing finance and operations for a small residential construction company in his hometown of San Francisco.
