I'm an experienced and tech-savvy energy journalist and blogger living in the Boston metro area; my name is Kat Friedrich. Currently, I work for a university-sponsored news publication, a nonprofit news source, and a green business.
After working as an engineer for four years, I completed a graduate degree that focused on journalism and energy resources. This career change led to a series of exciting writing projects related to clean energy, brownfield restoration, and diversity-friendly science education. I also helped to lead the redesign of a major energy efficiency website.
Readers have responded very positively to some of my work. The newsletter I produce for the Clean Energy Finance Center has a 60 percent click-through rate. A survey revealed a large fraction of our readers are taking actions because of the newsletter. A technical book proposal I prepared was accepted by MIT Press. My blog has been featured in the Freshly Pressed section of WordPress. My Green Communication Guide will be used as material for a university seminar on sustainability this fall. And my work has been cited by Environmental News Network, WBUR, and many other sites.
I've also written a thesis and reports exploring environmental communication practices. You can find free tips in my Green Communication Guide.
