As an Energy Engineer, Kelsey provides analyses and project development support with a focus on tenant utility billing for existing and new developments. She works with property owners to optimally, as well as cost-effectively, redistribute master-meter utility costs to their tenants. She reviews each tenant’s Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) drawings to accurately tabulate Electric, HVAC and Water usage where a sub-meter is not installed, with the goal of minimizing the risk to a property owner in underbilling or overbilling tenants. Her in-depth knowledge of building and lighting systems helps her to offer invaluable advice to property owners, including strategic economic analysis, on a large variety of energy efficiency initiatives.
Kelsey has over five and a half years of energy engineering and consulting experience. Kelsey’s expertise includes market assessments, site evaluations, technology potential analysis, and energy use modeling for building systems. Prior to joining Resource Energy, Kelsey was an Energy Engineer with 2RW Consultants and advised clients on energy use and potential savings opportunities for residential, commercial, and industrial spaces. Her responsibilities included conducting energy audits, completing utility analyses, and creating energy models. Previously, as a senior consultant with Navigant Consulting, Kelsey served as a technical consultant to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Program. In support of the DOE SSL Program, Kelsey employed data analytics to track pricing and performance trends for LED and organic-LED technologies and created models of both the U.S. general illumination and horticultural lighting markets to estimate energy consumption and forecast savings potential. During her time with the DOE SSL Program, Kelsey authored several reports and managed several projects.
Kelsey graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.A. in Physics. She also completed continuing education credits at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Lighting Research Center through their 3-day LED Lighting Institute.
