Becoming ... an Energy Solutions AdvisorWebinar on August 16, 2022
How do I simplify and make energy efficiency more accessible? What does it take to make energy & carbon reduction programs successful? How can I join the clean energy for all movement? Join us on August 16th to hear from Disha Veena Giridhar about her career path and her work as a Lead Generation and Outreach Manager at Greensaver.
Disha completed her Masters in Energy Science and stumbled on energy efficiency. Initially, the work seemed un-glamorous compared to other energy & climate sub-sectors. As she learned more, she realized energy efficiency impacts not just energy infrastructure but other areas such as real estate, insurance, finance, economy, and the very fabric of energy infrastructure.
In her role, Disha works on federal and provincial program deployment by matching top-down strategies to on-ground realities and focuses on what this looks like for consumers. A lot of effort and strategy is put into decarbonization at the federal, provincial, and even regional levels. But deploying at the consumer level requires aligning those high-level goals and strategies with everyday consumer needs. Disha’s typical day involves keeping up with market trends, finding ways to spread awareness and get the word out about incentives, and solving for clients with an engineering, finance, and regulatory lens.
Whether it’s creative troubleshooting or more extensive innovations that ripple through the sector, it’s the continuous innovation that makes Disha proud to work in the energy efficiency sector.
