These programs’ primary focus is complex and comprehensive retrofits in Industrial facilities. He is also involved with  additional Commercial and Industrial energy efficiency programs administered by utilities across the nation. For Tennessee Valley Authority, Spencer was the technical lead responsible for the transition of the implementation of programs from one contractor to Lockheed Martin.

Prior to joining Lockheed Martin, he has overseen a team of engineers conducting due-diligence energy project reviews, conducted on-site energy audits of a wide range of commercial and industrial facilities to assess energy savings, make energy efficiency measure recommendations, and  develop and execute  measurement and verification (M&V) plans. Spencer has brought his extensive experience to several collaborative processes, including his participation in the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for the development of standard measurement and verification guidelines for retro-commissioning (RCx) savings assessments.
