“Much like you would go to pump a gallon of gas at the gas station, knowing how much you save through energy efficiency should be able to be a consistent metric that everyone…can know what the component pieces are.”
Carmen Best found clever ways to use her geology degree, including now leading the policy development team at a cool new tech start-up that is increasing energy efficiency, from homes to buildings to utilities.
The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) says energy efficiency is our 3rd largest energy resource, so this is huge. Listen to Carmen, Director of Policy at Open EE, describe this new technology and how it keeps your utility and other energy providers honest by providing independent monitoring of how systems are operating, before efficiency programs are installed and afterwards. This verifies the return on investments.
And, how she went from geology to the Public Utility Commission to a cleantech startup…and what you can learn from her experience.
