Alumni Spotlight

Kathleen Ward (MS'16) works for Navigant Consulting, happily located at its Boulder, Colorado, location. More REDA alumni stories are available in this article.

"The energy field keeps evolving, and I keep learning, which makes it an exciting field for me to be in," says Ward. She specializes in evaluating programs that incentivize energy demand reduction during peak periods. She's also worked with the Nest Learning Thermostat in estimating the impact and annual energy savings for thermostat-enabled events, when the devices self-adjust to save energy during periods of peak use. "I like knowing we're pushing for a more efficient and dynamic energy future," Ward says.
