ICF International 03/2009 - Present

Energy Engineer and Analysis for utility energy efficiency incentive programs for both Baltimore Gas and Electric and Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative. I worked with large commercial and industrial customers to do engineering and economic analysis of HVAC and lighting retrofits and new construction. I assisted in the design and capital procurement planning including ROI determination and funding assistance through utility incentives as well as federal and state grants. Projects included;

Chiller plant modernization for commercial buildings at 100 Light Street in Baltimore, Upper Chesapeake Memorial Hospital, Harford Memorial Hospital, and Bon Sequer Hospital.

Lighting retrofits at campuses include Towson State University, the US Naval Academy, Calvert County High School and Calvert County's new Aquatic Center.

Johnson Controls Inc. 10/2007 - 02/2009

Building Automation and HVAC Account Executive (UVA) As the building automation and account executive for the University of Virginia, I was responsible for sales, installation and project management to the university. Johnson Controls is the primary building automation and controls company for the university and recently purchased York HVAC equipment. As the account executive I was responsible for bidding new work for both controls and equipment, monitoring existing systems and ensuring the timely and accurate completion of on-going work in accordance with engineering and best practice specifications. I completed both Johnson Controls and York HVAC equipment training at the factories as well as pass the LEED AP exam while at Johnson Controls.

Additional Responsibilities include:
Monthly project status reports
Project estimating/sales and marketing
Assist project manager with installation and maintenance of all HVAC and controls equipment
Produced technical proposal and engineering submittals
Submitting purchase orders
Budgeting and monthly reporting requirements

GridPoint Inc. 2005 - 06/2007

Product Development Manager GridPoint manufacturers small business and residential Supply Side Management appliances for utilities such as Cogentrix as part of an electrical peak shaving strategy for utilities to tap discrete points of saved energy during times of excessive demand. As an energy engineer I designed and implemented the system data flow from the GridPoint appliance back to the GridPoint Operations center over the internet.

Energy analysis was done to support sales and marketing determining energy costs savings and Return On Investment (ROI). A centrally located architecture was developed so that all parties in the process of deploying and maintaining an appliance would receive timely up-to-date information regarding an appliance and/or customer. The software was designed to maximize benefits from flexible pricing initiatives by utilities. The product greatly enhances the profit capture ability of the consumer, taking advantage of hourly electricity rate changes.

ANTARES Group 1997 - 2005

Mechanical Engineer - Design, Installation, and Monitoring of a Rooftop Solar Power System, Prince George's County and the Maryland Energy AdministrationThrough a state grant initiated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), ANTARES installed a 12 kW solar photovoltaic system on the roof of the Inglewood III office building in Largo, MD.
The building is the countys main headquarters for the Department of Environmental Resources, Public Works & Transportation, and Housing & Community Development.
The objective of the project was to capitalize on valuable state and Federal cost-share funding to install a minimum-cost solar power system for demonstrating the benefits and performance of solar power technologies. The project was funded by Prince Georges County, the Maryland Energy Administration, the Virginia Alliance for Solar Electricity, and the U.S. Department of Energy through an award from the Utility Photovoltaic Groups TEAM-UP program.
The system includes a remotely accessible weather station and power meter to monitor system performance. The weather station monitors wind speed, solar energy, and ambient temperature. Additional metrics were calculated such as CO2 emissions curtailed and electricity cost savings.
Wrote technical proposal for grant money from DOE for installation and monitoring (conducted analysis to break down amount of grid energy displaced and CO2 emissions curtailed) of 12 kW solar photovoltaic system.
Engineering analysis to determine size and placement of solar panel.
Construction drawings for panel installation.
Installation and setup of remote gateway to solar panel and batteries to monitor kW production.
Development of algorithms for calculating cost savings and emissions reduction.
Oral presentations and marketing of project.
