Speaker: Zac Bloom, M.S., LEED Green Associate
Location: 170 Olver Design Building

Interweaving the complexities of budgeting and sustainability for the energy procurement strategies of universities and large institutions requires a combination of expertise and prognostication that must respond to continually changing technical environment and the volatility of local, national and global politics.

Mr. Bloom originally joined Competitive Energy Systems (CES) in 2012 as a Business Development and Account Manager and was soon promoted to Director of Sustainability & Renewables. Now CES’s Vice President, Head of Renewables & Sustainability, Mr. Bloom primarily consults with universities and large commercial customers on energy procurement strategies, budgeting, sustainability, energy benchmarking and CES’s proprietary Utility Tracker. Prior to joining CES, at UMass Amherst, Mr. Bloom focused his studies on energy benchmarking and data visualizations for large data sets associated with building’s resource consumption profiles.
