Jingjing Liu, P.E. is a Program Manager in the Building & Industrial Applications Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She has more than 10 years of professional experience in commercial and industrial (C&I) energy efficiency and is well-rounded in the broader utility and clean energy industry. At LBNL, she manages projects and conducts research to promote state-of-the-art energy management systems and practices. Her research interests also include data center energy efficiency, demand response (DR) and other grid services that industrial facilities can provide.
Prior to her current position, Jingjing worked at DNV GL as a Senior Engineer leading quality assurance for C&I large project technical reviews for utility energy efficiency programs nation-wide. She has assured properly funded incentives of over 6.5 million dollars and verified energy savings of over 90 GWh. She also served as a lead in multiple high-profile energy audits. Her attention to detail and customer focus satisfied many key accounts such as Intel, PG&E and Apple. She also developed and managed multiple innovation projects and proposals in the C&I sector, including a sales tool for outreach professionals, two industrial services from concept to packaged offering, and, many proposals focused on energy planning/assessment services.
At an earlier position at Nexant Inc., Jingjing performed measurement & verification (M&V) for PG&E customers’ complex projects, especially on many Bay-Area oil refinery projects. She also supported program managers as liaison between utility, customers, contractors and consultants. She performed site inspections and engineering reviews for more than 80 new constructions and retrofit projects. Some of her happy customers were Chevron, Phillips 66, Genentech, Applied Materials, eBay, Transamerica, etc. The impact measured 65 GWh and 1.2 million therms of total annual energy savings.
Jingjing has extensive experience with utility energy data analysis, including regression modeling. She had developed automated analysis tools to streamline analysis process. She also developed a simulation tool which estimates building energy savings potential to guide retro-commissioning prioritization.
Jingjing possess a spectrum of expertise in commercial and industrial energy-consuming systems, such as compressed air, process heating and cooling, steam, pumping, HVAC and lighting. Her technical aptitude is testified by many certifications including the California Professional Engineer, ASHRAE’s Building Energy Assessment Professional (BEAP), Certified Practitioner in Industrial Energy Management Systems (CP EnMS), Superior Energy Performance (SEP) Performance Verifier – Industrial Sector, Six Sigma Green Belt, and, DOE’s certified Steam Tool Specialist, AIRMaster+ Specialist and Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool (PHAST) Specialist. She received her MS in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University as well as her MS and BS in Architecture from Tsinghua University, China.
