    Conor Laver, Ph.D.
    Chief Scientist

    As Chief Scientist, Conor applies his statistical and coding powers to develop rigorous energy studies for energy analysis. He designs and refines our methodology in everything from energy modeling to utility analysis to building population analysis. If that doesn't impress people, he reminds them he is a Doctor in Astrophysicist from Berkeley; and if that doesn't impress them, he pretends to be from Ireland.
