Whether testifying before Congress or auditing Ellen DeGeneres' house, Matt Golden has been spreading the word about energy efficiency for years.
An entrepreneur, policy advocate, and efficiency agitator, Matt is committed to bringing energy efficiency in the built environment to scale as a demand side resource. He has made presentations on emerging efficiency markets to the US Senate Finance Committee, at COP 21, and to the UK Parliament among many others.
Matt is CEO of Recurve, the company that developed the OpenEEmeter, an open source platform for measuring energy savings and load shape based on smart meter data. Recurve works with a variety of utilities, government agencies, and private efficiency providers to track savings and load shape using AMI data and enable pay for performance markets for demand side capacity.
Matt also leads the GBCI Investor Confidence Project implementing a system to certify commercial and multifamily Investor Ready Energy Efficiency™ projects in order to reduce transaction costs, and develop actuarial data to unlock capital markets for commercial and multifamily retrofit projects.
Previously, Matt founded Recurve (the original), which developed tablet based energy auditing software for the residential energy efficiency industry based on real world experience gained through thousands of energy efficiency audits and retrofits as a licensed CA energy efficiency contractor. Tendril Networks acquired Recurve in 2012.
