It is with great sadness that we learned that EVO’s friend and long time supporter, Art Rosenfeld, passed away Friday January 27, 2017 at age 90. Considered by many as the “godfather of energy efficiency”, Art Rosenfeld leaves behind an impressive legacy as a professor, as an energy efficiency leader, and as a policy influencer. Less known is Art’s important contribution to the foundation of EVO.
