WASHINGTON (Oct. 5, 2020)—The R Street Institute is excited to welcome Philip Rossetti as a senior fellow on the energy and environmental policy team.

In this role, Rossetti will conduct research on energy, climate, and environmental policy to identify low-cost and free-market opportunities to improve environmental outcomes.

“I am elated to join such a dynamic team at the R Street Institute,” said Rossetti. “R Street has been a leader in climate policy action on the right and I look forward to working with the staff, industry experts and Congressional leaders to find pragmatic solutions to climate change.”

Prior to joining R Street, Rossetti served as a fellow working with the minority staff of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis in the U.S. House of Representatives. This position supported Congressional staff through policy and data analysis to brief legislators and supported the Congressional mandate of producing policy recommendations for Congressional climate action.

Prior to his time on the Select Committee, Rossetti served as the Director of Energy Policy at the American Action Forum, a center-right economically focused think tank. He was responsible for conducting economic analysis on federal energy and environmental policy, with over 50 publications and had his work featured in notable outlets including the Washington Post, Axios, Politico, The Hill and others.
