Prior to arriving at UC Berkeley, he worked for residential energy management company, Tendril, and grid sensor provider, Sentient Energy, helping both companies navigate the energy regulatory environment and tailor their products to meet the utility industry’s needs.
For five years Andy served as an advisor to California Public Utilities Commissioners Rachelle Chong and Nancy Ryan where he successfully led efforts to adopt policies on grid modernization investments and data access; regulatory authority over electric vehicle charging; demand response; dynamic pricing for utilities; and quality standards for liquefied natural gas.
