Bill Kenworthy

Vice President, Energy Optimization

As the Vice President of Energy Optimization, I support my team as they partner with national and regional clients to deliver energy solutions related to efficiency, resiliency, and sustainability. We focus on behind-the-meter projects and have experience across the technology continuum—from solar, storage, and lighting to central plants and microgrids. Our team of business development professionals, solution architects, engineers, and project managers, prides itself on co-creating breakthrough programs with our clients. Safety and a client-first orientation are our core values.

I have over 20 years’ experience in the power and utilities sector, with a career-arc spanning technology, operations, strategy, and product management. Since 2015, I have been in the distributed energy space working with C&I customers on behind-the-meter solutions. Prior to Edison Energy, I was the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the $200M, North American distributed energy division of a publicly traded multinational company. My team and I delivered projects using various DER technologies, leveraging a myriad of innovative contracting structures. From 2015-2019, I led or was part of five M&A transactions related to distributed energy businesses. Prior to 2015, I worked for the country’s leading retail energy supplier overseeing all retail operations for the natural gas desk, and previously worked in their small business and power operations teams.

This experience, coupled with our team of energy experts, allows us to provide comprehensive energy solutions to ensure successful program delivery for our clients.

Educational Background

B.S. in Electrical Engineering – Drexel University

Energy is now a c-suite category. Shareholders, boards, policymakers, and customers are demanding strategies beyond cost-management. They are demanding pathways that lead to sustainable, efficient, and resilient energy practices, with equivalent or enhanced financial performance. The aspiration is right but the implementation is multi-faceted and non-trivial. At Edison Energy, we offer a continuum of services—from advisory to design to delivery—that enable us to be the partner of choice and to unlock the power of energy for customers.
