“I feel very fortunate to be recognized by AEE, and I’m very excited to be receiving this award,” Romano said. “I’ve spent a good deal of my career designing and delivering training programs, and it’s a very gratifying to know that it has had such a big impact.”
Romano focuses on the design and implementation of energy retrofits, energy analysis, research and development, and instructional design and delivery. He has been committed to supporting professional development at all levels for more than 15 years.
