As an associate director and member of Cadeo’s engineering team, Nate Baker leverages his background in industrial facilities to support energy efficiency program design and regulatory review. Most recently, his work has focused on supporting efforts to increase energy efficiency in motor-driven equipment and adoption of energy efficient technology in commercial and industrial applications broadly. His research has supported program development by establishing unit energy savings estimates for pumps and fans and documenting operational characteristics of clean water pumps. Nate also provides technical expertise to support the development of energy conservation standards and test procedures.
Prior to joining Cadeo, Nate worked with Nalco Water where he helped manufacturing facilities and commercial buildings to optimize water, air, and energy consumption surrounding large-scale HVAC and boiler systems. Nate has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Technological University and six years of experience in research and efficiency engineering. He can also be found outside hiking and backpacking or building something in a dusty woodshop.
