Steve Kromer

Instructor

Steve Kromer is an energy efficiency consultant, focusing on energy savings verification (Program Evaluation and M&V) and energy efficiency data management systems. Mr. Kromer holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech. He was a senior engineer at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (where he is currently a guest researcher) and a director at Enron Energy Services.  Mr. Kromer currently consults internationally on M&V implementation and training.

Mr. Kromer’s focus is on the data, tools and processes to quantify the results of energy efficiency investments. Since the inception of the IPMVP, Mr. Kromer has maintained leadership positions within the IPMVP, EVO and AEE/CMVP committees and boards. He is committed to the vision of a world where the tools, resources and skills to perform M&V are standardized and ubiquitous.

Mr. Kromer seeks to fulfill that vision by remaining up to date on the latest developments in M&V and energy modeling. He teaches courses on M&V at all levels and serves on several current EVO committees and other industry working groups (ASHRAE 14, UMP, ANSI).

Mr. Kromer was on the original consulting team that assisted the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) when the state moved energy efficiency evaluation (EM&V) functions to that agency. He continued to consult to the CPUC as an advisor for almost 10 years. In that time Mr. Kromer originated the Engineering Working Group, the Uncertainty Working Group and the data management team that went on the create the current reporting tools.

Mr. Kromer recently contributed to the Department of Energy’s Open Efficiency Initiative where he focused on identifying and addressing barriers to the adoption of advanced energy modeling and analysis tools.  Mr. Kromer applies his skills with energy modeling and data management to numerous other jobs, including a large new construction project on a California university campus, the development of an ESCO in the Middle East (World Bank).
