Josh Gregory joined the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy as an Engineer in September 2021. Duty stationed in Golden, Colorado, Josh serves as a technical expert supporting technical assistance and administering financial assistance awards to American Indian nations, Alaska Native villages, and tribal and intertribal organizations.
Before joining the Indian Energy team, Josh spent the previous six years as a Mechanical Engineer with the Division of Energy and Mineral Development (DEMD), a tribal energy office within the Bureau of Indian Affairs. While with the DEMD, Josh assisted Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages with energy project planning and identifying sustainable energy development options by providing technical assistance and administering financial assistance through the DEMD’s tribal energy grant programs.
Josh was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado. Prior to starting what he plans to be an enduring career in tribal energy, Josh worked in a variety of fields including smart home systems design and installation, acoustics control, and transport refrigeration. However, working in tribal energy has by far been the most inspiring and fulfilling work for Josh, and he is honored to be a part of the team advancing the mission of the Office of Indian Energy for the ultimate benefit of American Indians and Alaska Natives.
