Biography

As an economist, Donna Hostick's primary focus has been on energy issues, with most of her experience relating to the impact assessment of energy-efficiency projects, technologies, and research programs. Her technical contributions include supporting the DOE Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Metrics, which developed estimates of the energy, environmental, and cost impacts of the DOE EERE annual budget request; and developing inputs and impact estimates for the EERE's Building Technologies Office, Federal Energy Management Program, and Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program. As a project manager, Donna is currently providing project management support to PNNL's Appliance and Commercial Equipment Standards (ACES) program and the Transactive Controls program. Previously, she managed the portfolio of work conducted for the U.S. DOE's former Office of Planning, Budget and Analysis, now incorporated as part of DOE's EERE Office of Strategic Programs: Policy and Analysis. From 2009-2011, Donna headed the End-Use Electricity Team in support of the Renewable Electricity Futures Study, a multi-party effort led by NREL and MIT and funded by DOE.
