Gregory Nemet is an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in the Nelson Institute's Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment and the La Follette School of Public Affairs. He is also a member of the university's Energy Sources and Policy Cluster.

His research and teaching focus on improving analysis of the global energy system and, more generally, on understanding how to expand access to energy services while reducing environmental impacts. He teaches courses in energy systems analysis, governance of global energy problems, and international environmental policy.

Professor Nemet's research analyzes the process of technological change in energy and its interactions with public policy. These projects fall in two areas: (1) empirical analysis identifying the influences on past technological change and (2) modeling of the effects of policy instruments on future technological outcomes.  The first includes assessment of public policy, research and development (R&D), learning by doing, and knowledge spillovers. An example of the second is work informing allocation between R&D and demand-side policy instruments to address climate change.

He has been an author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Global Energy Assessment (GEA). He received his doctorate in energy and resources from the University of California, Berkeley. His A.B. is in geography and economics from Dartmouth College.
