This week, Greg Schlegel, Jane Guyer and Jake MacArthur are in Chicago conducting training on building energy management and efficiency for the 2015 EDF Climate Corps fellows.  ETC Group was selected for this project due to our breadth of experience in energy engineering and our team's ability to make presentations engaging and interactive. Our goal is to prepare fellows on how to identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency in commercial space, perform related financial analyses, become an effective change agent and create a lasting impact within their host organizations. In fact, Jake MacArthur (pictured during his lighting project monitoring and analytics course) is an alumni of the program who worked with REI.

This year there are 125 EDF Climate Corps fellows. They are graduate students from top-tier universities with backgrounds in business, engineering, environmental management, corporate real estate, and other relevant disciplines. They will work at a host organization (e.g. Yahoo, AT&T, Addidas, REI, etc.) for 10-12 weeks over the summer on a variety of project areas including finance and energy modeling, data analysis, employee engagement, energy management strategy, analysis of revenue potential and logistics. We salute the Climate Corps fellows and look forward seeing their energy efficiency implementation efforts for host organizations.
