Founder and Executive Director of Energy Works Michigan in Ann Arbor. A nonprofit technical resource that provides educational programs and installs efficient and renewable energy technologies in K-12 schools, Energy Works is committed to a sustainable, equitable, and prosperous energy future in Michigan. Under Lauzzana's leadership, Energy Works has garnered $8 million in funding to partner with more than 150 schools and school districts across the state. Clients include large urban districts such as Detroit Public Schools and the Kent Intermediate School District; suburban districts such as Allen Park and Redford Community Schools; and many rural schools in both the lower and upper peninsulas. In 2009, Energy Works, with Recycle Ann Arbor and the Ecology Center, was awarded a $3.5 million grant by the Michigan Public Service Commission to administer the Michigan Renewable Schools Program. In 2010, Energy Works was awarded a $4.4 million grant by the Michigan Public Service Commission to continue and expand the program through 2013. Solar and wind installations supported by the program have already produced more than 43,000 kWh of electricity, enough to offset the carbon emissions created by more than 63,000 miles of automobile driving.

He also serves as chairman of the U.S. Green Building Council Detroit Regional Chapter public policy committee, contributes to the Michigan Bureau of Workforce Transformation Green Partnership Team, participates in the City of Detroit Green Taskforce, and is active in the Engineering Society of Detroit.
