VP of Research Development
Beth Hawkins’ research as a social scientist has primarily been focused on program evaluation through the measurement of impacts and outcomes. She conducts mixed-methods research including systems analysis, case studies, survey design and implementation, participatory planning processes, and community engagement. She is currently managing several projects within the residential low-income energy-efficiency (EE) space. Specifically, evaluating and monetizing health and household impacts of Tennessee Valley Authority’s Energy Efficiency Makeover program for single-family housing in Knoxville, TN (KEEM) through a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant; and EE programs in MF housing as delivered by utilities in the State of Massachusetts. Ms. Hawkins is also managing a multi-regional evaluation assessing improved building systems resilience attributable to MF EE programs through a JPB Foundation grant. Lastly, through a contract with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) she is managing a project documenting insights on market drivers, adoptability, and performance of ‘healthier’ EE materials.
