3Qs with Audrey Walker
Companies can spend up to millions, or even billions, of dollars directly on energy each year. Yet many organizations see energy as merely a cost to be managed — as opposed to an enormous opportunity to create new value. We spoke with our own Audrey Walker about how DSD helps forward-thinking companies see the often unseen. Audrey described what she does day-to-day to guide energy leaders to transformational changes.

As Business Development Manager for DSD, I focus on sourcing new solar, solar plus energy storage, and EV charging projects for our Direct Origination team.
2. How do you support the larger DSD team?
I use a variety of tools to identify, reach out to, and initiate conversations with stake holders for new business opportunities, mostly in the commercial and industrial sectors. I look for potential projects on a national level, as well as focus on certain industry segments and regions. I also assist the other business channels — DSD Connect and our Asset Acquisitions groups — by facilitating new introductions to regional solar developers and EPCs.
