The E2e Project, the nation’s leading research center focused on understanding what is technically possible and what is practically achievable for energy efficiency in a wide variety of settings, is pleased to announce that Jessica Lubetsky will begin as the organization’s first Executive Director on July 5, 2017.
“With this appointment, The E2e Project opens its Washington office to provide cutting-edge energy efficiency research and help policymakers and industry professionals create programs that will achieve greater savings,” said Christopher Knittel, George P. Shultz Professor at the Sloan School of Management, M.I.T. “We are excited to start this next chapter of our growing initiative.”
