Elizabeth Gillmor | PE, BEMP, LC, LEED AP
Elizabeth Gillmor has over 20 years’ experience in energy efficiency, lighting, and daylighting consulting, and she brings an unparalleled enthusiasm to her projects and clients. She founded Energetics to provide creative, timely, and cost-effective energy and daylighting solutions to building owners and design teams.
Elizabeth started her career as a lighting designer, but as her interest in lighting energy efficiency grew, she branched into daylighting design, which naturally evolved into whole building energy modeling. Since then she has guided hundreds of projects to a higher level of energy savings, documented over 50 projects seeking LEED certification, and helped her clients receive millions of dollars in utility rebates. She is also an expert in energy codes so that her clients don’t have to be.
Elizabeth is a certified Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP), former board member of the International Building Performance Simulation Assocation (IBPSA), active member of the IESNA Daylighting and Energy Management Committees, and is a regularly featured speaker for events such as the International Builders’ Show, Lightfair International, USGBC Rocky Mountain Green, IALD Enlighten, and Rocky Mountain ASHRAE.

Cindy Yang | EIT, LEED GA
Cindy Yang is a recent graduate from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. She first joined the Energetics team in early 2016 as a part-time intern while she was still in school, and then in early 2018 she moved into a full time role. She became interested in energy modeling after her first internship in Taiwan doing baseline energy analysis for subway stations, researching ways to reduce cooling loads. Currently, she is in training learning more about energy analysis and consulting. Her energy modeling experience includes multifamily, affordable housing, offices, K-12 schools, and higher education projects using OpenStudio and EnergyPlus software, for Xcel EDA program projects and energy code compliance.
She hopes to bring more energy, new perspectives, and excitement to the team and inspire others to be more sustainable.
