Teddi Davis’ Bio
Teddi is Vice President of Strategic Marketing for EcoAlign, a strategic marketing agency focused on energy and headquartered in Washington, D.C. The near future will be full of fundamental changes for businesses, customers and regulators as we confront carbon legislation, smart and green homes, interactive technologies, clean tech products, re-engineering of value chains, changing customer preferences and values. There is a gap, however, between what customers say they want around energy and what they actually do. Ecoalign was formed to help fill this gap and help align corporate and consumer behavior with the future of energy and environment
Before joining Ecoalign, Davis was Director of Customer Choice and Renewables Marketing at Xcel Energy, one of the nation’s most progressive and largest investor owned utilities serving customers in eight states. In her position she contributed to the company’s environmental leadership aspirations through the development and management of customer choice options for residential, commercial and industrial customers, such as payment and billing programs, optional rate programs, self service strategies, information programs that helped customers better understand their energy usage, and choice renewables programs such as Windsource–the #1 green pricing program–and Solar*Rewards–the #4 solar rebate program in the nation. She also helped develop marketing strategies for the company’s SmartGridCity program in Boulder, Colorado, and was also responsible for the company’s demand response programs including Saver’s Switch. During her tenure at Xcel Energy, Davis was responsible for Product Development for all conservation and energy efficiency programs, and managed residential DSM programs as Director of Consumer Product Marketing for the company.
Teddi is also co-chair of the TiE-Rockies Sustainable Energy Initiative, with the missing of supporting entrepreneurism in the clean energy space, including energy efficiency.
