Senior Analyst, GI Energy

Tim Banach is currently a senior analyst at GI Energy in New York City. Prior to this position, Tim was a senior analyst at the Pace Energy and Climate Center working on combined heat and power systems and district energy in New York and New England. Tim also did his internship at Pace. 

"The interdisciplinary nature of the first-year course work gave me confidence to communicate with any analyst across broad research areas, from renewable energy technology to energy markets to energy policy and law. The specialized nature of the second-year curriculum was instrumental in my professional growth. I am now senior analyst with GI Energy, where I model geothermal and combined heat and power systems during development, and measure the efficiency and economic performance of existing systems."
