We are thrilled to announce that Richard Yancey, Building Energy Exchange’s Executive Director, has been named one of New York’s Top Ten Energy Entrepreneurs.
Read more about the award and find out who else made the list here.
This is a wonderful honor for Richard and BEEx. However, we hope that Breaking Energy will produce an accompanying list of female entrepreneurs in the energy world. There is no shortage of options, but BEEx is happy to suggest some innovative women we know make the cut.
This is not a ranking, names are listed alphabetically.
Jill Anderson, NYPA
Kate Burson, NY Governor’s Office
Jessica Grove-Smith, Passive House Institute
Bomee Jung, NYCHA (formerally Enterprise Community Partners)
Charlotte Matthews, Related
Nilda Mesa, NYC Mayor’s Office
Sukanya Paciorek, Vornado
Angela Pinsky, REBNY
Any other ideas for women who should be on this list? Comment below!
BEEx had the opportunity to host some of these women at our WISE – Women in Sustainability and Energy Breakfast Symposia in March 2015. Look out for our proceedings report, which will be published shortly, and get excited for WISE 2016!
