Speaker Bio

Christy Cannon has been a Certified Energy Manager for 15 years with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, a minor in Physics, and two years postgraduate study in Civil Engineering. Her career in energy has spanned over two decades, including surviving the Texas electric market deregulation of 2002 while representing 120 Texas cities at the ERCOT Retail Market Subcommittee meetings and testifying for the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission on the health of the Texas retail electric market. She has done everything from building databases that model utility tariff rate schedules, to onsite ASHRAE audits, to conducting classes on peak demand management and electric market economics for City Managers, Facility Directors, and Mayors. In her current capacity at Yardi Systems she focuses on real time metering, data acquisition, and alerting tools for all kinds of building systems. She is in her third year on the AEE Advisory Board and a Council on Women in Energy & Environmental Leadership (CWEEL) member on the mentorship committee. On a more personal note, her parents were hippies, and they had rain barrels way before they were cool…or sold by Costco.
