Energy Trust’s Thad Roth receives NEEA leadership award recognition


Congratulations to Thad Roth, Energy Trust’s residential sector lead, who received Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s Leadership in Energy Efficiency Award for Collaboration.

Thad was one of 13 members of the Consumer Products Steering Committee, a coordinated effort among Northwest utilities, NEEA and other regional energy efficiency organizations to share regional strategies that advance energy efficiency in the consumer products market. The group recently has been working on shared strategies around promoting and developing innovative funding sources for smart thermostats.

The Leadership in Energy Efficiency Awards recognize individuals and teams for their outstanding collaboration, innovative solutions and significant contributions to advancing energy efficiency in the Northwest. A panel of Northwest energy and utility leaders selected the winners from more than 30 nominations submitted by the regional energy efficiency community.

We’re also proud to congratulate other staff members, programs and partners who were nominated for NEEA Leadership in Energy Efficiency Awards, including:

  • Dan Rubado, nominated for a Leadership in Energy Efficiency Award for Innovation for his analysis into how well Energy Trust’s benefits are being distributed to customers with low incomes, communities of color and rural communities. The analysis informed Energy Trust’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion plan.
  • Ryan Crews, nominated as part of the Community Energy Project Direct Install Heat Pump Water Heater Program, for a Leadership in Energy Efficiency Award for Collaboration.
  • Jackie Goss and Mark Wyman, nominated for Energy Trust’s Manufactured Home Replacement Pilot.

Award recipients will be recognized after the first day of the NEEA Board Annual Meeting on December 4th in Portland.
