Planning & Evaluation
Edward Vine, Research Coordinator, leads the Planning and Evaluation program at CIEE. He has provided technical and management assistance to CIEE since its inception in 1991, and joined the staff in 1999. Currently, he provides technical assistance to the California Public Utilities Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy on evaluation and program-related issues regarding energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy, behavior, and climate change. Ed is also a Staff Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), where he has been involved in evaluating energy efficiency programs and technology performance measurement for more than 30 years.
A world-respected leader, Ed received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize as a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), along with Vice President Al Gore. Ed played a primary role in adding behavior and behavioral change to the design, implementation, and evaluation of energy efficiency programs. And he was instrumental in promoting the field of evaluation in the professional energy service community, primarily through his involvement with the International Energy Program Evaluation Conference (IEPEC).
Ed has contributed to the development of the California Public Utilities Commission's Energy Efficiency Evaluation Protocols, the U.S. Department of Energy's Impact Evaluation Framework for Technology Deployment Programs, and the National Action Plan on Energy Efficiency's Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification Guidelines. He presently serves on the Board and the Planning Committee of the IEPEC.
In addition to the Nobel Peace Prize, Ed has received numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the IEPEC, the Outstanding Achievement in Marketing Research and Evaluation Award from the Association of Energy Service Professionals, and Certificates of Appreciation from the IEPEC and from the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol organization. He holds a B.S. in Environmental Studies from Middlebury College in Vermont, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Ecology from the University of California, Davis.
