The small commercial sector is historically difficult to reach due to diversity in business types and other market barriers. As federal lamp standards become more stringent and market penetration of efficient products grows, lighting-only programs will have increasing difficulty achieving savings goals. Seventhwave will present research that provides a holistic look at energy savings beyond lighting in the small commercial sector. Using data from surveys and in-depth site visits, we identify common characteristics and recommend program strategies for increased participation in energy efficiency programs.
Jeannette believes that the solutions to our energy challenges necessitate a multi-faceted approach. Her experience reflects that belief, as she brings a comprehensive background in energy systems analysis. Her work at Seventhwave focuses on applied and technical research examining how people use energy, and hopes that this knowledge will serve to advance energy efficiency and sustainability. She serves as a volunteer member on the City of Madison's Sustainable Madison Commission.
Jeannette has a Bachelor's degree in Natural Resources from Cornell University and a Master's degree focusing on Energy Analysis and Policy from the Nelson Institute of Environmental Studies at UW-Madison.
