Andy Marso is a recipient of a 2014 Transatlantic Energy and Climate Network's Energy and Climate Media Fellowship. The goal of these fellowships is to create opportunities for American journalists to research and report stories from Europe about European approaches to energy and climate policy that would inform policy debates in the United States.
Andy Marso has written about Kansas energy policy, including the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), for more than two years as a state government reporter for the Topeka Capital-Journal. He has a Bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Kansas and a Master’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and has also worked at the Daily Record (Baltimore), Washington Post and St. Cloud (Minn.) Times. During his fellowship Andy reported about renewable energy targets in Europe, how concerns about climate change affect European energy policy, and how RPS factors into the decisions of European companies to invest in the power infrastructure in Kansas.
