I have accepted an offer to join KEMA (now named DNV GL) full-time as a Senior Principal Consultant effective July 18, 2011. Since starting Lopes Consulting Services in 2010, I have continued to work on client projects involving load research, program design, research and evaluation, which fit very well with my new responsibilities at DNV GL. I will continue to work out of my Glen Cove, NY office, and travel to DNV GL and client offices as needed. Please contact me at 516-277-1087. Thanks to followers of Lopes Consulting Services, which is now inactive since all my energy-related work will now be through DNV GL.
