Margie Gardner is leaving her post as executive director of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) to join Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) as CEO.

During her 10 years at NEEA, Gardner transformed the alliance into the premier regional energy efficiency group. She and her team worked with local utilities to achieve greater energy savings, encouraging new technologies and providing training platforms to help utility customers become more energy efficient. As a result, NEEA has produced 160 MW of electricity savings at a cost of about $0.01 per kWh.

Prior to NEEA, Gardner served in senior staff positions at the Northwest Power Planning Council and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Gardner will replace Angus Duncan, founding president and CEO of BEF. Duncan will remain as president on a part-time basis and will devote the remainder of his time to focusing on Oregon and regional global warming issues with The Energy Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
