Guest speakers Nick Lombardi

Nick Lombardi is the Principal at oio energy, a DER project development and consulting firm specializing in solar, submetering, storage, and microgrid development in multifamily and commercial buildings. Nick got his start in energy in 2005 when he managed the planning and implementation of the Sustainable Design Guidelines for the Work Trade Center Transportation Hub in Lower Manhattan, a massive infrastructure project that served as a survey course in green buildings. After settling on building energy use as his main area of interest, Nick began to focus on energy projects as discreet investment opportunities. In 2013 he joined Conservation Services Group (CSG, now CLEAResult) to design and run pilot projects in residential and multifamily energy efficiency programs for NYSERDA, and to launch a consulting group aimed at helping multifamily building owners and managers increase operating income through investments in energy saving projects. Nick left CSG in 2015 to take on his own clients, focusing on companies and projects in the emerging DER space in a REV-crazy New York. Nick has worked with a wide variety of DER companies, including Demand Energy, GridMarket, BlocPower, Brooklyn Power, and Sparkfund, largely on projects that feature multiple strategies and technologies layered on top of each other for deeper impact and greater operational flexibility. He was a key contributor to developing the microgrid at Marcus Garvey Village in Brooklyn, the NYCEEC solar loan for New York City co-ops and condos, the solar + storage installation that powered the Enel eVillage at the 2017 Formula E race in Red Hook, and a variety of solar + submetering projects in co-ops and condos in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx. Nick is a LEED AP, and he holds a B.A. in International Relations from Trinity College, and a M.S. in Real Estate Finance from NYU.
