Stephen Mushegan is the Associate Director of the Clinton Foundation's Islands Energy Program, focused on assisting Caribbean small island developing states in their transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. He leads a team of country project managers supporting governments and utilities in the development of solar, wind, geothermal, and microgrid projects. As a prior project manager for the team, Stephen oversaw the procurement and contract negotiations for Saint Lucia’s first ever utility-scale renewable energy project, a 3 megawatt (MW) solar farm, and assisted the development and procurement for 1 MW solar PV in Turks and Caicos, distributed across 5 islands. He has supported technical and economic analysis for Saint Lucia’s National Energy Transition Strategy, and is overseeing a long-term Sustainable and Resilient Energy Plan in Dominica, in partnership with the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Prior to joining the Clinton Foundation, Stephen was an energy engineer focused on the commercial and industrial sector, specializing in combined heat and power, heat recovery, and electrical energy efficiency. He is experienced in feasibility studies, front-end engineering design, and project implementation.
Stephen brings a passion for clean energy and social impact, and balances a high-level understanding of energy systems and stakeholders with the ability to conduct deep technical and economic analysis. He holds an M.Sc. in Sustainable Energy Futures from Imperial College London and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (and Minor in International Studies) from the University of California, San Diego.
