Andrew Ford
Professor Emeritus

School of the Environment
Washington State University

I retired from WSU in May of 2014. My university research used computer simulation models to improve understanding of energy and carbon policies. My on-going research focuses on wind and solar generation with a special emphasis on the role of energy storage.

The website shows my classes as they were organized in my final year at WSU.
