Eric is an expert in holistic energy analysis of building systems and most regularly participates on commissioning, energy simulation, utility program measurement and verification (M&V), and portfolio-scale data analysis projects. On commissioning projects, Eric enjoys listening to owners and working with design teams early on to find cross-trade synergistic design solutions that maximize energy efficiency and owner satisfaction. Eric has been able to apply his understanding of building system interactions to many of our utility-scale M&V projects, which have measured energy savings across a wide range of facility and project types. Eric has been instrumental in the design and development of commercial and industrial energy efficiency and demand response programs for our municipal utility clients. He recently authored an innovative ACEEE paper regarding outcome- based new construction efficiency programs for utilities.
Prior to Go, Eric worked at developing and applying whole-building detailed energy simulation techniques at three other companies including a large multi-national engineering design firm. During this time, he also gained experience in HVAC design for several projects for large public and private institutions. He is skilled in using several energy simulation software platforms, early-stage building design consulting, energy audits, data analytics, and is a certified building energy assessment professional (BEAP) through ASHRAE. Eric holds a BS and MS in Architectural Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Outside of work, Eric can usually be found outdoors on a trail or one of the many rivers in central Ohio. He holds the company record for most modes of transportation used to arrive at work (nine). To fuel all these activities, Eric has been developing a new energy bar that taps into greater potential for human energy efficiency. Eric is also a member of the Sierra Club and the International Dark Sky Association, and loves to talk about ideas to address light pollution.
