Brett Wiley, MPA

Adjunct Professor

Brett brings over 15 years of experience centered on the power of people coming together. He’s started a business, non-profits, and initiatives with an entrepreneurial, collaborative spirit. He’s taken a clean energy social enterprise from a city to a region as a result of mutually beneficial partnerships, mission focus, a great team, and lean development. His qualitative research contributed to shifts in understanding and policy to ensure no one gets left behind in our national energy transition. His service on the Board of Justice Outside supported the rapid growth in small donors as the non-profit centered and grew their work with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color across the country.

Outside of Presidio, he manages electric transportation programs and serves as the subject matter expert on that topic at MCE, a public, not-for-profit community choice energy provider serving over 1 million customers in the Bay Area. He currently manages programs, and a growing team focused on expanding EV charging infrastructure, ensuring low/moderate-income residents can own & access EVs, demonstrating how EVs with managed charging benefit MCE customers and our grid, and a fleet electrification pilot supporting municipalities, schools, transit authorities, and small businesses.

Brett’s professional background is also rooted in experiential education, community organizing, policy planning, community wealth building, and systems thinking.
