Matthew Landi, Science and Policy Associate, provides expert scientific, technical, regulatory, policy, and legal analysis of environmental issues related to the energy, air and water programs at Clean Wisconsin. As a current Environment and Resources PhD student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison pursuing an Energy Analysis and Policy graduate certificate, Matt leverages the resources and expertise of the University of Wisconsin system for his research and analysis at Clean Wisconsin.

Matt is currently leading Clean Wisconsin’s analysis of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan. His background and expertise in energy law helped Clean Wisconsin in its efforts to mitigate the more extreme impacts of Madison Gas and Electric’s (MGE) 2014 rate case, and helped lead MGE to commit to a technical stakeholder group process to evaluate rate designs that properly incentivize energy efficiency and conservation efforts, and renewable energy development in MGE’s service territory.

Matt graduated from the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse with a bachelor of science degrees in political science, public administration, and philosophy and a minor in environmental studies. While there, he was heavily involved in the La Crosse community and student governance, specifically involving environmental and sustainability issues. Additionally, Matt graduated Vermont Law School with a master’s of environmental law and policy degree and an energy law certificate, writing a report about a renewable energy program in Rwanda which was ultimately published in the journal Energy for Sustainable Development.

In addition to his academic and professional commitments, Matt also serves on the Board of the Madison Civics Club, enjoys playing soccer any chance he gets, and exploring Wisconsin’s abundant and beautiful natural resources (when it’s not too cold, at least).
