Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 04, 2014
E Source, a leading research and advisory firm, is pleased to announce that Brad Davids, Cameron Brooks, and Dennis Crumb are now working with the E Source consulting team as retained advisors. The trio of energy industry leaders brings deep knowledge in the areas of demand-side management (DSM), regulatory affairs, and customer experience.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Brad, Cameron, and Dennis to our team of consultants,” says Mike Hildebrand, vice president of Consulting Solutions for E Source. “The utilities we work with need best-in-class solutions to their most challenging problems, so it’s essential that we have the right mix of expertise on the team. With the addition of these major industry players and trusted leaders, we’ve expanded our already solid capabilities to help utilities tackle tough projects and corporate initiatives.”
Brad Davids, a co-founder of E Source, is a well-respected DSM and demand-response expert with more than 20 years of experience related to retail energy and end-use markets. Previously, he was vice president of Utility Solutions at EnerNOC; held senior marketing positions at Puget Energy Services, DoubleClick, and Southwall Technologies; and was president and CEO of Primen, a subsidiary of the Electric Power Research Institute.

He has held senior positions with smart grid, renewable energy, and energy-efficiency firms and has deep experience with public policy, capital markets, and electricity regulation.
