Poppy Storm has worked in the energy efficiency and decarbonization field for more than 10 years. She is the founder and director of innovation for 2050 Institute. The 2050 Institute is a think tank, research, and policy consulting network advocating for a paradigm shift in how we reduce energy use and GHG emissions in the Northwest and beyond. The 2050 Institute uses a strategic “2050” lens to design frameworks, policies, codes, and programs that interlock technology, energy, and climate action across regional, state, local, community, and utility platforms. Poppy uses a systems approach and design thinking to move beyond rhetoric and identify the deeper system dynamics and analysis necessary to align policy mechanisms with actual energy and GHG reductions.

Smart Approaches for Building Electrification & Carbon Reduction
This session will explore both new construction and retrofit examples of buildings that embraced electrification and eliminated carbon emissions. Deploying smart technologies is not an end but a means – along with a set of strategic design and equipment selection choices – to reduce a building’s carbon footprint and provide a compelling return on investment for the building owner. Whether you are involved in a new building project or trying to find the best path for your existing building, this session will help you thread the needle of smart solutions with a solid business case behind them.
