Larry R. Rowland, C.L.E.P., C.E.M., B.E.P., attended Michigan Technological University for two years before entering military service and ultimately spending nearly eight years in the U S Navy.
Larry is a decorated Vietnam Veteran and served as a group supervisor of one of the two nuclear reactor power plants on the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier before his honorable discharge.
After spending several years as a Nuclear Instrumentation Specialist with A Virginia public utility and as an automation systems specialist with a major controls manufacturer, Larry began a career with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Larry's body of work at Williamsburg included creating an energy management program for 1,100-buildings occupying over 3 million square feet.
His programs resulted in a reduction of energy costs to below 4% of the operating budget with annual savings approaching $1 million.
After serving Colonial Williamsburg for 16 years, he spent the next few years developing and managing energy related projects for Savage Engineering and then as a Project Development Manager for the Johnson Controls Atlanta 4-state area.
He then moved on to manage the performance contracting development and construction activities for Siemens Building Technologies in the State of Alabama for several years before joining the Midwest Regional Ameresco team in his current assignment as a Senior Project Development Engineer operating the Alabama office of Ameresco located in the greater Birmingham area.
Larry holds a Bachelor of Science (EE) degree from Christopher Newport University (Newport News, Virginia) and holds AEE certifications as a Certified Energy Manager, Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional and a Certified Business Energy professional as well as various other professional certifications.
Larry was inducted into the AEE Energy Manager's Hall of Fame in 2003.
AEE, the Alabama Energy Services Coalition and ASHRAE are among his professional memberships.
He has served on a number of technical advisory boards and produced a number of papers/publications.
