    MT101 training gave newcomers to our industry a strong foundation for their work and a better understanding of how ratepayer funded efficiency programs can be designed to transform the market. Presenters shared market transformation case studies (both local and national), explained the importance of developing a logic model, and described how market transformation programs are evaluated.

    Attendees walked away with a clear picture of how market transformation is defined, how efficiency programs can help diffuse innovation, and the elements that constitute a market transformation program. Participants designed a hypothetical market transformation program and gain experience in identifying market barriers and opportunities, the specific market problem(s) we want to solve, and key measureable outcomes.
