Congratulations to Justin on his new position as Treasurer for the Wisconsin Chapter of the Association of Energy Services Professionals’ (AESP) Board of Directors! AESP is a member-based association dedicated to advancing the energy industry through professional development and mentoring programs, networking, and knowledge sharing.
Justin is a Senior Energy Research Analyst at WECC, where he focuses on energy efficiency program design and strategy, as well as emerging technology and market research. He is currently leading an effort to identify beneficial electrification pathways for utilities with an initial emphasis on heat pump technologies.
Assuming a leadership role in AESP is a natural next step in Justin’s professional path. He began his energy career in community solar business development in Minnesota, and returned to his hometown of Madison in 2015 to complete a Master’s Degree in the newly-founded Resource Energy Demand Analysis (REDA) program at the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
“It was a natural progression for me to graduate from REDA’s hands-on culture, to my current job at WECC, and now as a member of the AESP Wisconsin Board,” Justin said. “Sharing knowledge and improving the industry is what both REDA and AESP are all about. While on the Board, I hope to contribute to new and creative ways to engage the highly accomplished and diverse group of Wisconsin energy professionals.”
Justin joined AESP in 2016, and was honored with the New Professional Scholarship at the 2017 National Conference. He first became involved with the Wisconsin Chapter by volunteering to emcee the Chapter’s inaugural “Switch” event this past September.
