Breakthrough Generation is the young leaders initiative of the Breakthrough Institute, a paradigm-shifting think tank committed to rejuvenating progressive thought for the 21st century, perhaps best known for its pioneering climate and energy policy work. Each summer, Breakthrough offers highly competitive fellowships to top young analysts, writers, and thought leaders from around the world. Founded in 2007, Breakthrough Generation seeks to foster the development of a new generation of leaders capable of fully grappling with the scale and complexity of today's greatest challenges.
As a Breakthrough Generation fellow, I researched energy markets in the developing world with a specific focus on India and Brazil. I compiled my research into country-specific case studies, an extended research report, and a presentation to funders, colleagues, and the organization's leadership.
