When I introduce myself as a program manager for an energy consulting company, whether at an energy-focused conference or to new acquaintances, I am frequently then asked: "what does that mean?" or "so, what do you do?" When I was first exposed to the nebulous world of energy consulting, I had the same questions. I soon found that it is not an easy question to answer, because there is so much to be done. And when someone asks what kinds of energy consulting Gotham 360 does, the least specific answer is the most accurate answer: "all kinds."
The Board of Trustees of New York's Barnard College, a women's college affiliated with Columbia University, recently voted to divest from energy companies that deny climate change who are currently within the college's $286 million endowment.
Barnard students have pressed the college to establish a broad divestment pledge, a movement that in the last five years has grown to campuses across the country. Last year, a committee of Barnard trustees, faculty, and students endorsed a proposal that would divest from only fossil fuel companies that seek to deny climate science or thwart efforts to mitigate the impact of global warming.
In 2007, I founded Gotham 360 as a full-service energy consulting and management firm dedicated to helping companies source the most innovative and cost-effective energy solutions. Our unique "360-degree" approach focuses on exploring energy from a variety of directions to provide individualized solutions for each client.
Gotham 360 was founded in 2007 when CEO Jennifer Kearney catapulted her expertise of the energy industry into running a full-service energy consulting and management firm. With over 30 years of combined experience, Gotham 360 has since become an influencer in the field of energy management & sustainability, working with companies to source the most innovative and cost-effective solutions available.
