I currently manage Schneider Electric’s Global Blogging Community with the goal of igniting the intelligent energy conversation everywhere energy is consumed on this beautiful planet.
Over the past 7 years, I’ve been involved with the sales, marketing, business development and communication aspects of Schneider Electric’s energy management solutions. I’m a strong advocate for forward-looking and holistic energy policies & strategies, and the role they play in catalyzing the societal movement towards a profitable, successful and sustainable future.
I’m an alumnus of both the Alliance for Global Sustainability YES programme (MIT, University of Tokyo, Chalmers University, ETH Zürich) and the World Energy Congress FELP. I have also co-founded a sustainable investment advisory company, Strategic Sustainable Investments, and have held analyst and research roles with several sustainability and carbon reporting organizations. Additionally, I sit on the Board of Directors of the non-profit Student Energy which holds the biennial International Student Energy Summit (ISES).
Residing on the west coast of Canada, I hold a Masters of Science degree in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability from the Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden and a Bachelor of Arts degree (Economics/Psychology) from the University of Victoria in British Columbia. One more note; I love having fun outside in this wonderful world. Follow me on Twitter @nickblandford
