Kevin Zheng

Research Fellow


Kevin Zheng became a part of the Institute for Sustainable Energy in October 2017. Prior to joining the ISE, Kevin was a Research Associate at Wood Mackenzie, where he was the primary GPCM modeler for North American natural gas markets. Additionally, he maintained supply and demand balance sheets, as well as individual sector demand models. His time working with clients in the natural gas field helps bring a holistic approach to his views as he pursues his passions in the clean energy and sustainability sectors.

Kevin’s work at the Institute is focused on the effects of urban densification on water demand in Austin and San Antonio. Rather than the traditional approach of building new supply, the team is considering a vast portfolio of options as we forecast demand under different growth scenarios, both One Water and traditional supply sources and financial implications.

He is also a part of the Carbon Free Boston team whose objective is to develop a plan to help the City of Boston achieve a net zero carbon-free status by 2050. His prior experience in building efficiency with FirstFuel Software and Boston University’s Facilities is valuable, as he completed the first round of reporting for the City of Boston’s Building Energy and Reporting Disclosure Ordinance for all 13 million plus square feet for the University.

He holds an M.A. in Energy and Environmental Analysis and a B.A. in Environmental Analysis and Policy from Boston University, where he also served as President of the Energy Club.
