Scott has made a career of aligning people’s self-interest with the needs of the planet. He joined Voltus to bring GWs of new Distributed Energy Resources to grids around the world, and in doing so, to facilitate the rapid decarbonization of the global economy.
In the early days of his career, he worked in non-profits, government, and as a utility consultant to develop new ways to deliver energy efficiency services. With his move to EnerNOC in 2006, he shifted his attention to the application of new technology and business models in driving the clean energy transition, developing EnerNOC’s business in emerging demand response markets in the western US, the UK, and Australia. Building on that work, he joined Nest Labs in 2011 to lead Nest’s efforts in pioneering the BYOT model for residential DR programs, bringing close to a GW of new flexibility resources to grids around the US. Following Google’s acquisition of Nest, he developed and launched Google’s smart home/clean energy subscription service, Nest Renew, which aims to boost demand for renewable electricity, accelerate adoption of EVs and heat pumps, and shape residential energy use around the volatility of renewable generation.
Our team has brought to market a combined 12,000 MWs of distributed energy resources (DERs) over the past twenty years, from demand response to distributed generation to energy storage, and we’ve built out markets around the world in more than a dozen countries, from Australia to Korea to the UK. In fact, Voltus’s leadership team is responsible for opening most of the DER market opportunities that exist today.
