Nick Sayen's research helps provide objective information about energy issues to business leaders, building professionals and policymakers. His work as a project manager with the Energy Center of Wisconsin helps shape public policy designed to achieve greater energy efficiency in Wisconsin and the Midwest. A primary part of his work in 2010 is assisting in the management of a national evaluation of the U.S. Department of Energy's Weatherization Assistance Program.

Prior to joining the Energy Center in 2009, Nick was a program and planning analyst for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources where he worked on climate change policy and staffed the Governor's Task Force on Global Warming.

While he was a graduate student, he had a project assistantship with the Wisconsin Department of Administration's Division of Energy and served as a development intern with Habitat for Humanity of Dane County. He graduated with a Master of Public Affairs degree in 2007, focusing on environmental policy.
