National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)
Mary joined the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in 1995 as an engineer in the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP). As she provided technical assistance on energy efficiency and renewable energy projects and supported development of numerous alternatively-financed projects, Mary became the team leader for the Utility Energy Services team and ultimately, the FEMP Program Manager, where she developed new program areas and brought innovative concepts to realization.
In 2005, Mary became the Program Manager for NREL’s Building Technologies Program, managing the buildings activities across NREL including research, technology development, technology validation, and applied research for residential and commercial buildings. Through her continued success with NREL, Mary was asked to create the Integrated Deployment corporate function at NREL and develop and direct projects that focus on integrated deployment across a portfolio of energy efficiency, renewable energy, fuels, transportation, and grid integration technologies that utilize the technical expertise across all areas of the lab.
Prior to joining NREL, Mary worked for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District as an engineer in the Advanced and Renewable Technologies group. Mary has an Executive MBA from the University of Colorado, Denver and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering.
