Alexander Klonick

Sr. Associate


  • Business Renewables Center

Alex is primarily working with the Business Renewable Center to accelerate the sustainable purchasing of renewable energy. He is also working to open new markets and scale impact by developing data based tools that streamline decision making.


Alex began his career in research and development at a vehicle telematics startup company. To move closer to his passion of solving environmental problems, he consulted on the development of an online water conservation tool for agricultural stakeholders in the Colorado River Basin. On the side, he taught English as a second language, and volunteered on an Engineers Without Borders project in Panama.

Beyond energy, he has applied his skills to co-found the North American Coalition for Insect Agriculture. The group will help establish the nascent industries related to insects as feed and food by organizing the varied interests and resources. He is especially excited by the potential of the feed industry to address two significant ecological issues, food waste and over-fishing.
