Matt Ingvardsen

Registered Energy Advisor

I am an Energy Advisor called to the profession by a growing passion for the science of buildings and human behaviour. I believe that we can improve humanity’s quality of life and the environments in which we live, on a large scale, through small scale education and installations. I am naturally drawn to technical assessment and communicating those results in a tangible and meaningful way. A consulting advisor for life, I will continue to leverage a diverse background in residential and civil construction, process management and leadership, and advisory roles with university level education and premium industry standardized training to continuously provide the most leading edge and thorough advisement to all homeowners, property managers, realtors, and executive teams, with whom I engage. Living in Beaumont with my wife of 15 years, and 3 lovely children, we have an affinity for the mountains and getting lost in the forest on foot. I love the idea that my work and my play are so connected in a way that each benefits the other.

Cristin Tchir

Program Administrator

I’m happy to be a part of the Energy Werx team. I have 4 kids, 1 graduated and moved out (woo hoo!) A passion for health and wellness as I am a certified personal trainer. I’ve always loved helping people feel better! I love to get away to the mountains and hike in the summer, and ski in the winter, really anything outdoors is where I want to be!

Emerson Dickie

Registered Energy Advisor

I decided to become an energy advisor after adding multiple upgrades to my own home. I have personally completed projects through the Greener Homes, Edmonton Solar, and HERA programs. I am passionate about home efficiency and I love new and green tech.

Before coming to Energy Werx, I founded Green Transport, a trucking company that my partner and I fueled with biodiesel from numerous Alberta sources. After 13 years, I exited my position after selling it to a larger company.Earlier in my career, I worked in the renewables sector installing geothermal heating systems.

I’m passionate about this industry and love to talk about my own upgrade experiences; including an 8kw solar system, air source heat pump, attic insulation, and drain water heat recovery.

In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, playing squash, and working on projects. My wife and I just started our family, and we love adventuring with our new little guy.

Russ Ingvardsen

Registered Energy Advisor

With over 30 years providing Professional General Contracting services for new and existing homes, Russ was drawn to specialize in the Energy Efficiency of homes.

“It was a natural progression for me. I’ve always been adamant about providing the best service for my customers as possible. Now with Home Energy Efficiency so important, at this stage of my career, it made perfect sense to specialize in it. It’s pretty much a passion for me now. Everyone always knew that adding Solar, upgrading your windows, doors or furnace made sense, but no one could put a number on it – quantify it. Today, more than ever, homeowners need and want this information. Money is tight, our impact on the environment is of concern and owners need to know specifically what is more beneficial to upgrade in their homes and why”.

Today, Russ enjoys providing Energy Advice to homeowners in the Calgary and Southern Alberta area.

Marianne Lopez-Henthorn

Registered Energy Advisor

Making homes better for their inhabitants is at the core of my decision to become an energy advisor. My previous background as a power engineer allows me to think about processes and systems from a holistic point of view. This translates to viewing the home from a house-as-a-system approach, and understanding the bigger picture of how each component comes together to form the home.

I’m genuinely enthusiastic about the science of building better living spaces. Like many, this sprouted from implementing energy efficient upgrades in my own home. I enjoy staying up to date with the latest advancements that can transform homes into efficient, cozy havens.

Outside of the building science realm, I enjoy hiking the local trails, finding the best dishes in Calgary, and traveling all around the world.
