Andrew Eberle joined Ecologic Institute from March 2013 until March 2014 as a Transatlantic Fellow. His interests included climate change, renewable energies, biodiversity, social justice, and the law. He is a native English speaker and has an advanced knowledge of German.
Andrew Eberle was researching fuel efficiency, emissions regulations, and electric vehicle support structures for CECILIA 2050, a three-year research project setting out to describe the mixture of policies necessary for the European Union (EU) to transform to a low-carbon economy by 2050. This project is funded as a part of the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission (EC). Additionally, Andrew contributed to an assessment of climate-related policies in each EU member state in the context of the European Semester.
Andrew was actively engaged in research on international trade regulations, including a study for the European Parliament (EP) on the environmental impacts of the proposed EU-US free trade agreement, also known as the "Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership" (TTIP). Previously, Andrew contributed to an analysis of the impact of trade regulations, particularly local-content requirements, on renewable energy financing mechanisms and their compatibility with international law, a project financed by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Andrew Eberle was also researching the benefits of stakeholder cooperation in environmental law enforcement for the FP7 project European Union Action to Fight Environmental Crime (EFFACE).
Prior to joining Ecologic Institute, Andrew Eberle worked for the Heinrich Böll Stiftung office in Washington, DC, researching and engaging in outreach on renewable energies, foreign and security policy, and anti-corruption efforts within the the Group of Twenty Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (G-20). Before that he worked for an American law firm specializing in the financing of solar power installations. In 2010, he researched climate financing commitments stemming from the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen for The Nature Conservancy's (TNC) European headquarters in Berlin.
Andrew Eberle received his Bachelor from Yale University in 2011, with a double-major in Environmental Studies and German. His thesis in Environmental Studies investigated partnerships created between corporations and non-governmental organizations for the purpose of achieving environmental conservation goals. Part of this study was published in 2011 by the United States Forest Service in their Landscape Stewardship Guide.
