Serving as a Senior Technical Manager, Roy brings a wide breadth of knowledge to the Benningfield Group team. Possessing a passion to improve the understanding and implementation of building energy efficiency, he understands the needs of industry stakeholders and seeks solutions to pass on to others.
Roy recently joined Benningfield Group after spending 27 years in the construction industry as a restoration contractor and business owner. He began focusing on building energy efficiency in 2006, and has served as a HERS rater, Title 24 energy consultant, and residential mechanical designer. Working directly with contractors in the field, Roy quickly became aware of the need for energy education throughout the trades. As an adjunct professor at College of the Desert, he was instrumental in the creation of the first Zero Net Energy (ZNE) A.S. Degree program in the California Community College system, and hopes to implement the program state wide.

As a Senior Technical Manager at the Benningfield Group, Kim Hogan plays an integral role in helping us certify energy professionals. A Certified Energy Auditor and energy consulting veteran herself, Kim is intimately familiar with California's Energy Codes and Standards, making her the perfect candidate to develop tests that measure the skills and knowledge of professionals seeking recognition.
Kim's tireless effort ensures design and construction professionals are educated at the high standard required for consistent building energy compliance.

Her careful listening and analytical research skills help her excel in this area as well.
Kim is currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture, where she is focusing on developing skills in Building Information Modeling. Outside of her professional endeavors, Kim volunteers in a public Bible literacy and teaching program. She also enjoys spending quiet moments gardening, sewing and reading.
