Oli Powell, CMO of co2power

Hi, I’m Oli Powell, CMO of co2power , a startup that works with BCH in providing sustainable roofing solutions. BCH is a sustainable architecture firm that has worked with the likes of Bill Gates, the Disney Corporation, McKinsey and Reed Hastings to build sustainable buildings that use less energy and conserve water. BCH’s Cool Roofs™ program began in 2009 and is currently used in 3,500 multi-family projects and 165 high-rise buildings in the U.S. and Canada. The program aims to maximize the building’s energy efficiency through the integration of BCH’s patented air sealing systems and control systems and energy resource management system. These systems help reduce indoor air pollutant (IAP) levels and reduce rainwater runoff by more than 90%. Cool Roofs™ products are not only very energy efficient but also provide a green building solution for existing buildings in a way that helps build resilience to climate change.

Before becoming CMO, Oli worked as Vice President of Innovation at BCH and helped launch Cool Roofs™ at commercial buildings. Before BCH, Oli was Sales Director at GE Energy Financial Services (GE Energy Financial Services is GE’s Global Power and Water unit), where he also helped launch a similar program in China and help modernize the local power grid. He has worked with GE since 2002 as a product architect, marketing leader and strategy consultant.

Oli holds a degree in electrical engineering, with an emphasis in electrical & communication engineering. He is a Certified Energy Management Specialist (CEM) and a member of the American Institute of Architects and Chapter 104 of the Vermont Leadership Institute. He is an alum of the International Conference on Global Energy Management and has completed Summa Cum Laude and a BS with honors in Electrical Engineering at the University of Vermont.
