Michael Motherway comes from the energy sector where he developed power plants of various technologies and scales. He also advised industrials on directly procuring power and natural gas. While electric utilities in several states contended with restructuring, he developed a business plan to commercialize an early microturbine distributed generator for an energy services company. Prior to his work in energy and infrastructure, Michael worked in the aerospace industry for AlliedSignal (now Honeywell) in finance and mergers and acquisitions. His power development work included a variety of technologies including natural gas fired turbines, reciprocating engines, industrial cogeneration, and wind power. He helped develop an innovative dispersed generating portfolio with an independent power producer, commissioning six plants (350 megawatts) in just three years from start of development to commissioning. Mr. Motherway has economics degrees from Princeton University (BA) and the University of California at Santa Barbara (MA).
