Patrick Ritchie

City of Eau Claire
Patrick Ritchie is currently working with the City of Eau Claire as an energy and sustainability intern as well as completing a B.S. degree in sustainable management from the University of Wisconsin. In his early 20’s,  prior to his time with the City, he spent 5 years working as a steamfitter apprentice in Southern Wisconsin at a number of industrial and commercial facilities. Patrick became fascinated with sustainability and renewable energy when working on the large geothermal system at Epic in Verona, Wisconsin which motivated him to continue his education in sustainable management. With the City, Patrick developed baseline carbon inventories for the community and municipal operations, worked as a team member on the Renewable Energy Action Plan (REAP), developed forecasted energy and emission scenarios to reach 2030 emission reduction targets, and was involved in the planning process for the Net-Zero Design Guide and Electric Vehicle Roadmap.
