MEETS AC was born out of the overwhelming interest EnergyRM received with the announcement of the first MEETS project (in Seattle). It was clear that many organizations saw the potential to “un-break” the commercial energy efficiency market – at depth and at scale. Rather than taking a “proprietary” approach, EnergyRM and its partner, Equilibrium Capital Group chose to try to spread the knowledge about MEETS as rapidly as possible. MEETS AC – a member-supported effort, was born.
In the Coalition’s early days, it was run by EnergyRM as an at-cost project. In May of 2015, Rob Harmon, the former President & CEO of EnergyRM took over the secretariat role for the coalition for EnergyRM.
