A Message from Founder

The environmental, political and health impacts of resource extraction, transportation and energy generation have drastically increased the need to develop renewable and sustainable energy technologies. We are just beginning to understand how to capture, control, store and utilize sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal power for everyday consumption. After more than a decade in the telecom industry, I also understand the unique challenges of a rapidly evolving technical industry that has to operate within a highly regulated framework. At EnergeiaWorks we address these issues by working to channel the demand for top talent who can help satisfy the urgent need for cleaner and greener technologies.
