During Women's History Month, Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) highlights influential women who work to advance Minnesota's clean energy industry. This year Megan Hoye, CEE's engagement manager, was highlighted in CERTs Minnesota Women in Energy blog series. Check out the full blog series.

From Clean Energy Resource Teams:

Can you tell us a little bit about what you do in the energy world in Minnesota?

Megan Hoye: My work consists of leading advanced energy district planning projects, creating engagement and learning opportunities for energy experts and energy users, as well as leading and supporting user-centered research. My passion continues to be helping Minnesota explore how to have the most affordable and sustainable clean energy future. I believe that achieving this requires persistent collaboration, communication, and open-mindedness to new frameworks for assessing issues and opportunities.

I am the Engagement Manager at the Center for Energy and Environment, where I have worked for the last five years (April 2013). My time at CEE was preceded by Fresh Energy, the U of M Extension, time at a DC lobbying firm, and two local architecture firms before graduate school.

A major part of my work is helping navigate innovative development and energy piloting opportunities to explore new value streams for the public and utilities. This guidance includes facilitating visioning for development or redevelopment projects that are looking to lean in to the future through increased resiliency and flexibility in their investments. It also includes producing technical and economic analysis that outline the costs and benefits of various development scenarios and recommendations for implementation. I am currently the project manager of the Edina Grandview Green Sustainability Study and lead on the DSM support services provided to the Rice Creek Commons and the Destination Medical Center projects.

I also work with communities on energy action plan development and implementation support, preparing energy analysis to guide this process and developing tools intended to elicit and sustain local action. I am also the community lead for St. Cloud through Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy program.

I also lead and support user-centered research projects at CEE. Through this part of my work I am able to identify opportunities for increased public benefit or energy user benefit through examining the opportunities and costs of local action. Right now this consists of being the community liaison for our Commercial Energy Codes Support Pilot as well as the Pay-for-Performance study that will begin February/March 2018, and looking for user-centered electric vehicle research that can help increase penetration beyond natural market rates.

For over the last four years I have also overseen CEE’s peer to peer learning opportunities, believing that we can have deeper learning when we have inquisitive and innovative engagement. This work was carried out through our webinars, forums, and workshops to inform and optimize future energy impacts...
