Stacy Dennery on transforming the policies around LEED certification. Introduction by Patrick Whitney.
Stacy Dennery is interested in transforming the way in which appraisers quantify energy efficiency, green building materials, and LEED certification. Since the stock of LEED buildings is very small, and most are municipal or corporate-owned buildings that are rarely sold, the data in this area is limited. In terms of policy, potential barriers to innovation include the current tax assessment process, the Fannie Mae appraisal forms, and the difficulties in quantifying worker productivity.
Stacy Dennery received her Bachelor of Arts in Politics, Magna Cum Laude from Ursinus College in 2000. For the last nine years she has worked as an Account Executive for a wholesale mortgage lender and as a licensed real estate appraiser. Her volunteer work includes several Chicago-based environmental organizations, such as The Resource Center, Alliance for the Great Lakes, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. She is currently pursuing her Masters in Public Policy with a concentration in Environmental Policy at the Harris School of Public Policy, University of Chicago.
Hosted in partnership with the IIT Institute of Design, the 2009 Innovation Summit brought together influential innovation experts, business executives, academics and government leaders to discuss innovation and accelerate Chicagoland's development as a globally recognized center for innovation.
