Our Advisory Board

The Energy Collective is much more than an online magazine. Our vision is to facilitate conversation and debate between all of you - the entrepreneurs, analysts, researchers, executives, and academics that animate our community - and to provide a forum for your ideas.

To ensure that we continue to live up to the highest standards, we've asked four of our most respected member-bloggers to serve as an advisory board for the site. They were selected for the outstanding quality of their work, their expertise across the spectrum of disciplines that make up our community, and most of all for their commitment to the ideals that drive us: inclusiveness, balance, community and civility.

Watch for original, exclusive posts from our advisory board members. They'll enliven our podcast series, appear in our webinars, and cover events for us as the opportunities arise. And we look to them to be advocates for the community-at-large as well, keeping us focused on our mission as we expand, and making sure we don't forget...

The Energy Collective is your community.

Please join us in welcoming the members of our Advisory Blogger Board. Drop them a note of greeting, and visit their sites.
