David W. Cash was appointed a Commissioner at the Massachusetts
Department of Public Utilities by Governor Deval Patrick in June, 2011. Prior to
this appointment Dr. Cash was the Undersecretary for Policy in the
Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA).
In this role, Dr. Cash advised the Secretary of Energy and Environment on
an array of issues including energy, land management, water management,
oceans, wildlife and fisheries, air and water quality, climate change,
environmental and energy dimensions of transportation, and waste
management. He was one of the architects of clean energy legislation and
implementation in the first term of the Patrick-Murray Administration,
including the Green Communities Act, the Global Warming Solutions Act,
the Green Jobs Act and the Clean Energy Biofuels Act. Recently, he led the
Secretariat's effort in developing the Massachusetts Clean Energy and
Climate Plan for 2020, which provides a roadmap of policies and program
that will lower energy costs, create clean energy jobs, and reduce
greenhouse gases. Prior to working for the Commonwealth, Dr. Cash was a
research associate at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard
University, and a Lecturer in Environmental Science and Public Policy. He
also taught science in the Amherst, Massachusetts public schools from
1990-1993. He received a Ph.D. in Public Policy from the Kennedy
School at Harvard in 2001, and a B.S. in biology from Yale University in 1987.
