Ankit Kalanki

  • Third Derivative

Ankit is a Manager with Third Derivative, a global climate technology startup accelerator founded by RMI and New Energy Nexus in 2020. He is a recent graduate from Carnegie Mellon and brings with him a diverse skill set that includes techno-economic analysis, life cycle assessment, policy analysis as well as knowledge of application software such as Homer and Tableau.


Ankit worked in multiple roles in his prior engagements before coming to the United States for pursuing his Masters. As an energy engineer, he managed the operation and maintenance of thermal and electrical systems in a manufacturing setup, while also undertaking responsibilities for energy projects and environmental compliance. Later, he also worked as a consultant in the energy efficiency space, assisting clients on demand side management initiatives and impact assessment studies.

Ankit likes a work culture where everyone aims towards a common goal with passion and motivation, and this brings him to RMI. In his leisure hours, you will find Ankit watching documentaries or cooking (a very recent hobby :P).
