Rob Harmon has worked in the fields of clean energy and water for 30 years. Since 1998, he has focused on creating practical, scalable alternatives to outdated, entrenched, transaction structures.
In 2014, as President and CEO of EnergyRM, Rob closed the first twenty-year Metered Energy Efficiency transaction in history. He now directs the MEETS Coalition, which is focused on expanding the use of the Metered Energy Efficiency Transaction Structure.
Rob served for 10 years as Chief Innovation Officer for the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), where he developed and launched the first carbon calculator on the Internet and closed the world’s first retail renewable energy certificate (REC) transaction.
That work laid the foundations of today’s “green power” offerings throughout the utility world and launched an industry with annual revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
In 2009, Rob created and launched BEF’s Water Restoration Certificate business line, which utilizes voluntary markets to restore critically de-watered ecosystems. The approach is now credited with restoring more than 50 billion gallons of water to degraded rivers and streams and is the subject of Rob’s 2010 TED Talk.
