The Team


Bob Gunn, Founder & President
Bob is the original architect of the Seinergy concept and is our lead advocator to utilities and contractors alike. As a former utility economist at Snohomish PUD, Bob Gunn was saturated in the details of energy efficiency data policy and regional practices in the Pacific Northwest. Armed with a conviction that significant energy efficiency work is completed outside the scope of utility programs, Bob sought to test a new market mechanism for documenting and valuing these projects.

Bob is a corresponding member of the Regional Technical Forum and a Certified Energy Manager. Prior to his life in the energy efficiency field, Bob worked as a Financial Advisor for Todd Shipyards. He received an MBA in Sustainable Business with a focus on Alternative Energy.
