The evaluation of energy efficiency policies and programs has a rich and extensive history in the United States, dating back to the late 1970s. During this time, many different kinds of evaluation issues have been addressed: technical (evaluation methods and protocols, persistence, behavior and behavior change, and rebound), policy (how evaluation results will be used by energy-efficiency program managers and policymakers), and infrastructure (the development of evaluation professionals and an evaluation workforce).

Dr. Vine reviews the issues that are currently important and/or are expected to become more critical in the coming years in California and in the rest of the United States. He will also discuss his recent efforts in developing an evaluation community in Asia. Dr. Edward Vine is currently an Affiliate at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where, as a Staff Scientist, he was involved in the evaluation of energy efficiency programs and policies for over 36 years. Dr. Vine contributed to the development of evaluation protocols in California and for the US Department of Energy. He was on the Board and the Vine PhotoPlanning Committee of the International Energy Program Evaluation Conference, as well as the International Energy Policy and Program Evaluation Conference. Dr. Vine has received numerous awards for his professional work, and in 2007, as a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he received the Nobel Peace Prize.  Dr. Vine has a BS in Environmental Studies from Middlebury College, and a MS and Ph.D. in Ecology from UC Davis. Along with a group of committed evaluation professionals around the world, Dr. Vine is currently working on the creation of an evaluation community in Asia.
