Terry Egnor serves as EnergyRM’s Director, Measurement and Verification, responsible for the development, testing, and deployment of the company’s meter system and related technologies. Terry is the co-inventor of the world’s first reliable meter for the yield from energy efficiency, and is on a number of the Company’s issued and pending patents.
Terry pioneered energy efficiency at the utility scale inside PacifiCorp in the 1980s, where, as Director of the large commercial facility division, he laid the groundwork for advanced thinking on deployment of utility capital into large-scale energy retrofits. Egnor further advanced the art in his own energy efficiency company, MicroGrid. MicroGrid pioneered the MicroGrid® district scale “conservation utility” transaction model, and in partnership with The Hartman Company, successfully retrofitted multiple large commercial buildings to an average of 45% higher efficiency.
With MicroGrid, Terry consulted on the creation of integrated service subsidiaries for utilities, including Public Service Enterprise Group (NJ), Cinergy, Ipalco and Portland General Electric, using targeted portfolio analysis to identify and diagnose candidate buildings. His core principles and design today underpin the foundation of utility-deployed retrofit models across the country.
In 2008, Terry became an instrumental part of the rethinking of the economics and measurement of energy yield from energy efficiency with Equilibrium Capital Group that led to the founding of EnergyRM.
Terry holds a degree in chemistry and physics from Hamilton College, and a master’s degree from the Harvard School of Education.
