Ruosida (Star) Lin

Sr. Associate


  • China

Ruosida primarily works on both technical analysis and project engagement in the China power sector reform area, including the Reinventing Fire: China project, the power market optimization and simulation  project, feasible renewable procurement for corporate buyers in China, and other potential power related works.  Ruosida joined RMI in February 2015.


Before joining RMI, Ruosida worked for Energy Transition Research Institute, another NGO focusing on clean energy solutions. She worked on the program that built a forecast model for the China power system in 2050, and estimated the maximum potential of renewable penetration in the power system. The result of her work was published by WWF.

While perusing a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from University of Michigan, Ruosida interned in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and programed an Excel based app to help users conduct decomposition analysis on industrial energy consumption. She also interned at the Alliance to Save Energy supporting the promotion of high efficiency appliances.
