To this work, ICF brings unparalleled field experience in energy efficiency, grounded in strategic insights on clean energy policy and demand-side management. In addition, ICF's team of geographically based regional account managers and senior utility experts is backed by in-house policy, program, marketing and technology experts as well as the full strength of the firm's highly acclaimed energy and environment businesses.
"Since 2006, ICF has helped EPA expand ENERGY STAR's leadership role with the Clean Energy Program Administrator (CEPA) markets, including growing the number of ENERGY STAR CEPAs from 440 to nearly 700 nationwide," said Paul Vrabel, vice president for ICF International. "We look forward to continuing to help EPA bridge the gap between federal and local energy efficiency programs to help them effectively leverage ENERGY STAR as a powerful platform for delivery in this rapidly evolving marketplace."
"ICF's longstanding support of EPA's ENERGY STAR and clean energy outreach efforts combined with our successful implementation of 150+ energy efficiency programs across North America allow us to bring incomparable historical and institutional knowledge, innovation and best-in-class thought leadership to the forefront to help EPA and its partners strategize the next evolution of energy efficiency programs," said Mike Mernick, senior vice president for ICF International.
