As SEIA’s Director of Standards Development, Jennifer creates and publishes certification standards, best practices, and guidelines for the solar and energy storage industries. These efforts are designed to demonstrate that solar equipment has been ethically, sustainably, and responsibly sourced, manufactured, transported, installed, operated, decommissioned, and recycled with a level of quality that ensures its service life in a manner that reflects the values of the clean energy economy.
Prior to joining SEIA, Jennifer’s professional career included a wide range of experiences developing, evaluating, and managing a variety of renewable energy programs, ranging from workforce development to sustainable solutions for end-of-life equipment. Through these efforts, she has had the opportunity to work with installers, manufacturers, distributors, training programs, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, electrical inspectors, environmental justice and community-based organizations, U.S. Department of Energy laboratories, and state and local government agencies. These efforts are now helping to build a more robust, equitable, and sustainable energy transition in communities.
Jennifer holds a Master of Science in Sustainable Management from the University of Wisconsin, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ball State University, and an Associate of Applied Science in Sustainable Energy Technology with a Technical Certificate in Energy Technology from Ivy Tech Community College.
