Energy Transition New York

Energy Transition New York specializes in helping companies and organizations create and implement their Electric Vehicle and Microgrid strategy.

As weather events like Superstorm Sandy, international conflicts in the Gulf region and local air quality problems in big cities have shown, we need to fundamentally change the way we produce and consume energy. Luckily, ongoing technological innovation continuously creates more access to an abundance of cheap clean energy. Giving everyone of us the opportunity to consume energy for only a fraction of the price, without the environmental impact. Energy Transition New York uses a system approach from an economic as well as a societal perspective. We help businesses, governments and research institutes formulate its sustainable energy strategy and give them the necessary tools to effectively implement it.

We are driven to increase access to cheap, locally-produced energy to enhance a more just and stable system.
