Energy Insights

Updated: Mar 24, 2019

Welcome to my Energy Clean Tech Blog - "Energy Insights". I have attended numerous energy related events over the years and enjoy meeting people and listening to their stories. I plan to post (time permitting) my personal summaries of the events with a focus on the people that are on the move, have had a notable impact on our industry or just unique in their own way.

The AEE EAST trade show and conference was recently hosted in Boston for the 2nd consecutive year. It was great to see Dan Gould and Kathy Hunter from Synergy Investment. It is hard to believe that I met Dan 25 years ago during his first year in business. Synergy has had an impressive run and continues to grow as the popularity of LED has proliferated throughout the country.

I also had a chance to catch up with Domenic Armano who is now leading Guardian Energy Management Solutions as President. Guardian provides full service turnkey design build energy efficiency services with their own installation staff. It was great to catch up with the former UMass Lowell Track ace.

I also had the pleasure of having lunch with Dave Chamberlain (Raytheon), Dennis O'Connor (Raytheon/AEI) and Carl Popolo (AEI). Carl described the Energy East event as the "March Madness for Energy Geeks". If you haven't had a chance to check out the work Carl is doing you need to!

Lastly we had a lot of positive feedback and compliments on the EnergyMatters 2U podcast during the show! If you have not been on the podcast and would like to, please reach to either Leo Ryan or me. We would be glad to have you on the show!

I also had the opportunity to attend the sold out "Energy Storage: New Business Models Fuel Rapid Growth" on the evening of February 27th. Peter Kelly-Detwiler did a great job moderating the panel that included Dan Berwick (Borrego Solar), Alicia Barton (NYSERDA), Joe Crespo (Genbright), Kelly Speakes-Backman (Energy Storage Association) and Charlotte Ancel (Eversource). Some familiar faces in the crowd included AEE-NE past president Chris Pimentel (Powersmiths), Tom Ollila (Reading Municipal Light), Todd Isherwood (The Green Project Manager) and former New England Electric colleague Scott Englander (Longwood Energy Group). Scott is also involved in a new venture that addresses urban mobility and planning challenges. Check out for additional information!
