For more than two decades, Marie Schnitzer has dedicated her career to renewable and sustainable energy. She started in fuel cell development and hydrogen generation. From there, she turned to consulting in utility scale wind and solar. Since joining National Grid more than three years ago, she’s focused on non-wire alternatives and energy storage. Now, as Ombudsperson for NY Distributed Generation, her work enables projects decreasing the carbon footprint in New York and throughout the world. She does this, she says, to help leave her daughter – and millions of other daughters and sons – a better world.
