Veteran Energy and Utilities Executive to Leverage His 30-Years of Industry Experience to Expand Company Footprint in Clean and Traditional Energy

FAIRFIELD, N.J., Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transparent Energy, the national leader in online energy procurement, today introduced energy-industry veteran David Braun as its new Vice President of Partnerships & Renewables. In this role, David will leverage his 30+ years of experience and relationships across the energy, utilities, and renewables fields to grow Transparent Energy’s industry and vertical market channel partnerships, while also driving the company’s capabilities and opportunities in the rapidly growing clean energy space.

Prior to joining Transparent Energy, David was President at renewable generator and energy-storage developer GlidePath Power Solutions, where he led operations, maintenance, and asset management of the firm’s 400 MW portfolio of wind, solar and energy-storage projects. Since the early 2000s, David has held executive leadership roles in sales, marketing, risk management and operations at a who’s who of national energy companies, including Engie Resources, Direct Energy, Exelon Energy, ComEd, and Hospital Energy.

“David’s extensive energy experience, knowledge, and relationships are going to be a major asset for Transparent Energy as we continue our meteoric growth,” said Dustin Scarpa, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Transparent Energy. “With his broad and deep skill set, David would have brought immediate value to any company he wished to join; that he chose to bring his talents to Transparent Energy says a lot about what we have accomplished as a company and, just as importantly, where we are going. We are delighted to welcome David to our team.”

David Braun’s hiring comes on the heels of Transparent Energy’s historic procurement of over 1 billion kWh of green energy for Westchester Power, a program of Sustainable Westchester.
