The author of the Google 2030 energy plan

The author of the Google 2030 energy plan is Jeffery Greenblatt. Here is his bio:

Dr. Jeffery Greenblatt, Ph.D. joined in March 2008 as Climate and Energy Technology Manager. He reviews renewable energy proposals for grants and/or investment for the REC (Renewable Energy Cheaper Than Coal) initiative. He also advises the team on climate change science, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions forecasts, and a broad range of climate mitigation strategies. He is currently focused on the Clean Energy 2030 proposal and ways for Google to help create a 21st century electricity grid.
Before coming to Google, Dr. Greenblatt was High Meadows scientist at Environmental Defense Fund, where he evaluated the technical, economic and environmental aspects of a wide range of energy technologies. He developed "wedge" climate stabilization scenarios for California, the Midwest, and the US, and he was also the technical lead editor on "Earth: The Sequel," a book about the emerging clean energy field, by Fred Krupp and Miriam Horn.
He received his training in climate and energy at Princeton University, where he was on the research staff for four years, working on many projects including ocean carbon cycle modeling, the economics of wind energy and energy storage, and the development of the "wedge" climate stabilization concept with professors Robert Socolow and Stephen Pacala.
He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 1999.

Enough said!
