As an energy consultant with Navigant Consulting, I use my IEOR degree almost every day. A recent project involved risk analysis of deferring transmission and distribution network upgrades with a utility's targeted demand-side management program. I ran Monte Carlo simulations to determine the likely range of capacity deficit or excess in congested networks after deploying energy efficiency measures. This helped the utility determine how long they can defer making costly network capacity upgrades. Currently, I am modeling California's wholesale water system to determine the energy required to make water deliveries. Whether I'm performing statistical significance testing, modeling, or optimizing, my IEOR degree has helped me excel in my work.
