Quinn Parker Joins EMI Leadership
Quinn Parker is joining the EMI team as Director and will work to connect the dots between evaluation results and implementation efforts. Ms. Parker is recognized for her program management expertise and her commitment to exceeding client expectations. She is passionate about venturing into the unknown and finding innovative solutions that set her clients apart.
“We are thrilled to have Quinn join the EMI team. Her diverse industry experience will add new dimension to our work, and her ability to see across industry trends will bring a broad view to our clients. Plus, Quinn is just wonderful person,” stated Julie Rey, President of EMI.
Ms. Parker comes to EMI Consulting with over 13 years of experience in energy finance and analytics, demand-side management (DSM) program design, planning and implementation, client relationship management, and business development. She is currently Vice President of Content and Research at the Association of Energy Services Professionals, where she worked with leading industry professionals to think through some of our most compelling industry challenges.
“I am excited to join EMI and work with this team of passionate professionals that are focused on the customer experience and committed to helping clients find solutions in this evolving energy environment,” Ms. Parker stated.
As Director, she will report to Julie Rey. We couldn’t be more excited to have her on board.
As the energy industry continues to transform, it feels only natural that our website keep pace. Located in Seattle, we had ample choice for technology and design partners. After a stringent process, we chose Y-Designs because of their creative take, scrappy “go get them attitude,” and passionate vision for melding design with functionality.
“Our industry is complex, and it’s easy to drown a website in copy. We had a vision for a clean website that felt alive—like energy. Y-Designs was the team that rose to the challenge. They didn’t push us to do what others do. They helped design something new from the ground up. They stuck with the challenge and that always brings the best results,” Ms. Rey stated.
Y-Designs brought a fresh perspective to our website, creating an online space that could grow, expand, and adapt as quickly as we do. The new website is a living representation of our brand—clean, accessible, and informative. This was a first venture for Y-Designs in the energy space. Prior work includes web projects in architecture, engineering, retail, non-profits, and startups.
“We were excited to support a client of EMI’s caliber that is doing great work in the field of clean energy. Sharing a core value of creating custom solutions, we were proud to design a truly bespoke web experience and digital branding for EMI that honors the unique culture and passion they have for their work. Taking a minimalistic and clean design approach, the new website offers greater functionality while keeping visitors engaged,” said Ryuhei Yokokawa, CEO of Y-Designs.
Under the guidance of Y-Designs, we will also be launching a new quarterly newsletter providing industry insights, news, and more.
New Service Offerings
Our clients need strategic support for all their clean energy programs, from energy efficiency testing to customer transformation. To better serve our current and future clients, we have clarified and expanded our service offerings.
”We have bundled our best practices into offerings to help customers find what they are looking for. We use these best practices as a starting point for understanding each client’s unique needs so that we can bring a solution that is tailor made,” stated Jeremy Kraft, Director of EMI.
The new website outlines our four categories of services: evaluation, measurement, and verification; data and analytics; market research; and strategic planning. Each service category has two to three specific offerings, providing clients ample choice to build a custom solution that best meets their individual needs.
With over 20 years’ experience in clean energy, we believe our new leadership, website, and service offerings help position our company as a trusted advisor in the rapidly evolving industry of clean energy.
