Ann Livingston, program manager for state and local engagement at the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project, was selected from a national pool of candidates to participate in the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) 2015 Executive Energy Leadership program. She joins 21 other business, community and government leaders in a five-month educational program of technical briefings, lab and site tours of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. By program’s conclusion, she and other participants will present a viable clean energy project.
“The continued transformation of energy systems toward a more sustainable future requires informed decision-makers who are leading the way,” said NREL Director Dan Arvizu in an introduction of 2015 Energy Execs participants.
Livingston, who holds a law degree and graduate certificate in environment, policy and society from CU-Boulder, served as Boulder County’s first Sustainability Coordinator from 2007-2011. In that position, she helped develop the ClimateSmart Loan Program, which led to $11 million invested in energy efficiency; played a key role in developing the County’s Sustainable Energy Plan; and worked to develop financing and grant programs for energy efficiency as well as education and outreach.
The Southwest Energy Efficiency Project is a public interest organization dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. For more information, visit www.swenergy.org.
