Julie Wernau

Julie Wernau is the former energy and green technology reporter for the Chicago Tribune’s business section. She covered electric and natural gas utilities, energy markets, green tech start-ups, battery technology, energy legislation, the country’s largest owner of nuclear power plants, the coal, oil, natural gas, wind and solar industries and their associated regulators. She tends toward stories that explore the impact business and economic trends have on the lives of real people: employees, business owners and consumers. She came to the Tribune in 2009 from The Day Publishing Company, a daily newspaper covering Southeastern Connecticut, where she was a multi-award-winning police/fire reporter. Her stories about a local predatory lending scheme led to investigations by the FBI and the state’s attorney general and the convictions of several co-conspirators.
