The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance announced the winners of its Leadership in Energy Efficiency awards this week, honoring two members of the Northwest Power and Conservation Council's power division.
Charlie Grist, manager of conservation resources, will receive the Tom Eckman Leadership in Energy Efficiency Lifetime Achievement award for his leadership on numerous regional collaborative efforts, both with the state of Oregon and at the Council. Charlie currently leads the development of the region's conservation potential assessment for the Council's regional power plan.
Tina Jayaweera, senior energy analyst, will receive the Leadership in Energy Efficiency Award for Collaboration, recognizing her work on the Consumer Products Steering Committee to establish regional strategies to advance energy efficiency in the consumer products market.
These 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. A ceremony to honor the recipients will be held in December.
