NCBPA is proud to welcome Emily Bulla and Jumana Jalmiran to our team for the summer of 2018!
Emily Bulla – Summer 2018 Intern
Emily is a rising Senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she’s studying to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy with minors in Sustainability and Urban Planning. For the summer of 2018, Emily is leading NCBPA’s “Energy Efficiency Potential Study” that will provide an industry perspective on the amount of energy efficiency savings possible across the state, focused on homes and buildings. To complete this work, Emily will be contacting NCBPA member companies, partners, state agencies and many others to collect data on existing energy saving projects, projects planned over the next few years, and other data to forecast “the big number”. Upon completion, the findings of Emily’s study will be used by NCBPA to draft legislation seeking state funding and support for a state-mandated study with an expanded scope and involvement of the state’s utilities and regulators. Prior to joining NCBPA, Emily interned at the Southeastern Wind Coalition and studied energy efficient and sustainable building development in Germany and the Netherlands last summer.
