On May 21, Andrea Marr, VP of Energy Services and Navy veteran, spoke on a USC Price roundtable that addressed options to empower veteran-owned businesses. The panel of speakers discussed successful business models and practical resources for veterans who want to transition to small business ownership. Three points of consideration from Ms. Marr’s presentation include:

1. Many veterans leave the military because they want the freedom to be their own boss. Unfortunately the barriers to entrepreneurship are particularly high for those who simply don’t have the network and the contacts because they’ve literally been out of the country for prolonged periods of time.

2. The role of mentorship, particularly among veterans, is only now being realized. Seeing peers find ways to succeed and seeking out that knowledge was a huge part of my decision to quit my job and start my own company.

3. Financing is usually viewed through a narrow lens – how much money will I need to start my company? What people don’t usually think about is the amount of money they will need to live on until they are profitable. You can be smart about it though and save for that. Unlike the military, you will not get a paycheck every two weeks as an entrepreneur!

In conjunction with the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, Andrea Marr, Regatta Solutions’ VP of Energy Services, will be speaking on a panel to expand small business development resources for veterans. The roundtable, titled “Building Blocks for Veteran Entrepreneurs” seeks to “attract policy makers, services providers, elected officials and the business community (many of whom are veterans) for a discussion on small business development resources for veteran entrepreneurs. [The] objective is to demonstrate the importance of ‘business for self’ as a positive career alternative and to relay available public and private resources for starting or expanding entrepreneurial endeavors.”

As Vice President of Energy Services, Andrea Marr is responsible for demand side energy management programs at Regatta Solutions. This practice includes energy monitoring, auditing and analysis at facilities ranging from hospitals to breweries. She is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy (Aerospace Engineering) and subsequently served as the Gunnery Officer on two deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and as a Nuclear Engineering Officer for a third deployment. She was a 2013 recipient of the White House Champion of Change award for her work in energy as a veteran.

ICF International provides Energy + Environment Intelligence Webinars on the second and last Tuesdays of every month.

Energy Recovery and Conservation

DATE: May 12, 2015
TIME: 11:30AM–12:30PM (Eastern)

In this webinar, ICF International experts examine the opportunity for behind-the-meter generation (BMG) using waste energy recovery (WER) and conservation combined heat and power (CCHP) in Ontario. The webinar provides an introduction to combined heat and power (CHP) in the context of the Conservation First program and describes the current market for BMG in terms of existing market and achievable opportunities in Ontario.

Discussion topics include:

  • Business case for CHP from utility and customer perspectives
  • Program rules for eligible projects
  • Recommended approaches to realize BMG opportunity
  • Specific types of BMG will be eligible for incentives under Ontario’s new Conservation First Framework, which will be in effect from 2015 to 2020. By focusing on CHP, local distribution companies (LDC) in Ontario will enhance their prospects for achieving Conservation First targets.
