Technology-to-Market Advisor, ARPA-E
Josh Gould is a Technology-to-Market Advisor at the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). He is responsible for leading the path to market approach for the Green Electricity Network Integration (GENI) program, and assists a wide variety of other ARPA-E Technology-to-Market efforts, intended to prepare breakthrough energy technologies for the transition from lab to market.
Prior to joining ARPA-E, he was at the clean energy market intelligence firm Cleantech Group. Mr. Gould began his tenure as a Senior Manager conducting market research focused on energy storage and the electric grid. He co-authored a report on grid vendors that was delivered by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu at the 2010 Gridwise conference, and his research into areas such as lighting and demand response were cited by Associated Press, MSNBC, and Reuters. Before leaving Cleantech Group, he was responsible for North American client partnerships and engagement, including all recurring revenue from existing customers, and managing the client team.
Prior to the Cleantech Group, Mr. Gould founded Gould Energy Storage – a firm advising utilities and investors on energy storage and other clean tech issues. That firm helped client Southern California Edison and a project partner write the winning proposal for what was – at the time – the world’s largest lithium-ion grid storage battery at a wind farm in Tehachapi, CA. Prior to this, he worked for Innosight Ventures, an investment firm based on the applied research of Dr. Clayton Christensen, disruptive innovation theorist and a Professor at the Harvard Business School.
Mr. Gould began his career as a strategy consultant, focused primarily on the utility industry. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Claremont McKenna College, where he graduated magna cum laude, and an M.B.A. from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. He was a founding advisor of the non-profit Philanthro Productions, and is a contributing author to the 2011 and 2013 International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNemi) roadmap on energy storage.
