Jedediah Drolet is an Energy Information Analyst at the Alaska Energy Authority (AEA). He works on regional energy planning, oversees community assistance and focuses on energy efficiency, specifically overcoming the challenges that face rural Alaska. Drolet wants to work together with the communities to find a solution. Collaboration is something that he values in his projects. Because of Drolets affiliation with DOE, he is able to connect communities with the necessary loans now that the grant money is no longer readily available. After graduating from Cornell University with a BA in Linguistics, Drolet received his masters degree in City and Regional Planning from Rutgers University.
