Jennifer Kearney

President of Sustainability

Jennifer formed Gotham 360 (now Environ) in 2007, building the firm into one of New York’s, and the nation’s, most respected energy advisory firms. Prior to forming Gotham, she served as the Director of Energy Programs for NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, the largest not-for-profit, non-sectarian hospital in the United States. In that role, Jennifer managed a $70 million energy procurement portfolio including power, renewables, natural gas and fuel oil. In addition to procurement of supply, Jennifer oversaw the development and construction of an 8MW synchronous cogeneration system, which was the first of its kind in the borough of Manhattan. Her efforts resulted in savings of more than $11 million annually and ongoing national recognition by the EPA as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year.

Leveraging her expertise in the healthcare space, Jennifer founded Gotham 360 to support other healthcare organizations with strategies for the development and deployment of energy programs based on combining established best practices with innovation in the implementation of new technologies. Clients from the higher education, industrial, multi-family and commercial sectors soon followed, and today Gotham 360 is recognized as a groundbreaking, woman-owned business addressing complex challenges in energy management, efficiency, resiliency and sustainability.

Jennifer has both authored and been the subject of several articles published in national energy journals, including Cogeneration & Onsite Power Production, Breakthrough, and Healthcare Facilities Management. She sits on the advisory board of Enterprising Women magazine and is committed to the empowerment of women globally in both her professional and personal life.
