Prior to his arrival at Yale, Bryan Garcia served as director of energy market initiatives for Connecticut Innovations, a quasi-public venture capital fund. In that position, Garcia invested resources that made Connecticut the regional leader in voluntary clean energy markets, including being a co-founder of SmartPower and creating the EPA and DOE award-winning Connecticut Clean Energy Communities Program. He was the climate-change coordinator for the Governor's Steering Committee on Climate Change, in which he served to facilitate interagency and cross-sector collaboration to develop the state's climate plan. This first-of-its-kind, sub-national effort on climate change received international recognition and won an EPA Climate Protection Award in 2005. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in the Republic of Kazakhstan, where he specialized in nongovernmental organization capacity-building and environmental education. He holds a B.S. degree in political economy of natural resources from U.C. Berkeley, an M.P.A. in public-non-profit management and an M.B.A. in finance from New York University and a master's degree in environmental management from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
