With more than 25 years of experience in energy and environmental engineering, David’s expertise in energy conservation ranges from preparing detailed technical evaluations of products (such as industrial transformers) to evaluating utility efficiency programs to auditing and metering buildings and building systems. He has helped develop specifications for battery-charging systems, dehumidifiers, water coolers, computers, and the correct installation of air conditioning equipment.
David and his team operate an engineering laboratory designed test a variety of products and systems. It also gives our energy services clients exclusive access to millions of dollars’ worth of meters, turning otherwise complex energy efficiency program monitoring and verification assessments into quick, accurate, and efficient processes.
David has also supervised the construction of cogeneration systems and conducted energy audits of millions of square feet of buildings. The ENERGY STAR® Power Management Program that David designed and oversaw for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, for example, helped convince hundreds of public and private organizations to set millions of computers to sleep mode after a period of inactivity. The effort saves over a billion kilowatt hours of electricity a year, worth an estimated $100 million.
David holds a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University, where he also pursued graduate studies in environmental engineering and aquatic science. He is a Certified Energy Manager by the Association of Energy Engineers, and a licensed professional engineer.
