innogy Consulting Appoints Former Rhode Island Public Utilities Administrator, Macky McCleary as Partner for U.S. Operations

March 19, 2019

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 19, 2019--innogy Consulting, a leading global energy-focused management consulting firm, has announced the appointment of Macky McCleary, former Administrator for Rhode Island’s Division of Public Utilities, as a new partner for its U.S. subsidiary based in Boston, MA.

Dr. Klaus Grellmann, Managing Director of innogy Consulting said of McCleary’s addition to the firm; “Energy markets around the world are undergoing a stunning transformation, and the United States is a central driver in that change. As we set out to provide guidance to our clients on how to navigate the future of power delivery, Macky’s deep experience as a regulator, entrepreneur and agent of change will help strengthen our already impressive offering in the U.S. We are very pleased to welcome him.”

“Our electricity system is going through a period of dramatic change. Rapid increases in renewable penetration have been driven by a combination of rapidly falling renewables prices and increasing consensus around carbon policy,” said Mr. McCleary. “As a result, the demands on utilities are rapidly evolving. These changes are both a threat to the existing business model and an enormous opportunity. As utilities and regulators attempt to adapt to the rapidly changing environment, they will need reliable, strategic, transactional and regulatory support to achieve their goals. I’m very excited to join innogy Consulting and leverage two decades of industry experience to provide that support. We can help.”

Prior to joining innogy Consulting, McCleary was appointed as Administrator of the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission by Governor Raimondo. While serving the people of Rhode Island, McCleary oversaw the overhaul of the state’s electricity grid to integrate high levels of intermittent renewable energy. He was also part of the team that led the state’s landmark 2018 initiative to install over 400MW of clean energy to help meet the state’s goal of 1000MW by 2020. McCleary also served as Deputy Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Energy, where he led the state’s efforts to transform its waste disposal and recycling policies, and the cleanup of the Housatonic River. Prior to his work in public service, McCleary worked with McKinsey & Company where he focused on carbon neutral and sustainability clients and also founded EmPower Solar, a successful and still growing rooftop solar company based in New York.
