I am excited to join the City of Boston’s Environment Department as their Climate and Energy Efficiency Fellow!
My name is Nick Moreno, I grew up and still live in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston. I have always loved the outdoors and knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the environmental field after taking my first environmental science class as a senior at Boston Latin School. In May of 2014 I graduated from Boston University where I majored in Environmental Science.
Since graduation, I’ve had the opportunity to gain experience in a wide range of fields including energy efficiency, ecological research, environmental conservation and policy. My first foray into energy efficiency was at the Department of Environmental Protection where I identified opportunities to reduce their carbon footprint by promoting alternative ways for employees to commute to work. I then spent some time assisting in climate change research on flowering trees and shrubs at the Arnold Arboretum. Most recently, I conducted site investigations and worked to locate corresponding documentation for identified tide gates and help set the groundwork for establishing a coastal monitoring network for MassBays National Estuary Program. On the weekends you can find supervising children’s swim lessons, taking a walk through one of Boston’s many green spaces, or spending time with friends.
I can’t wait to begin working on Boston’s Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO), contributing content for boston.gov and any other projects that come my way. If I can be of any help in submitting your building’s energy data, feel free to contact me!
