EnerKnol’s Leadership Recognized Among New York’s Top Energy Leaders
New York Energy Week 2013 brought together New York’s top energy business participants from across all sectors of the industry for a week of networking, collaboration and dialogue. During this groundbreaking week, energy news provider Breaking Energy, searched far and wide for New York’s most accomplished, inspiring, and the most promising energy professionals, sifting through hundreds of nominations to finalize the Top 10 people in the following categories: Women in Energy, Cleantech Leaders, Energy Entrepreneurs and Young Energy Leaders.
EnerKnol (formerly Energy Solutions Forum “ESF”) founder Angelique Mercurio, was named as one of New York’s Top 10 Energy Entrepreneurs. ESF’s Emily Bjorklund was listed in New York’s Top 10 Young Energy Leaders. As the creator of New York Energy Week, EnerKnol was honored by the additional recognition during the week’s initiatives.

The fact is that New York Energy Week wouldn’t exist without Angelique Mercurio, who made time to co-spearhead the effort to build the city’s first collaborative and open gathering of all aspects of the energy sector while also running her startup firm Energy Solutions Forum. ESF has become known across the energy business for its policy research written for an investment audience, and is the official founding sponsor of NY Energy Week. Her tireless efforts launching the NY Energy Week initiative, while simultaneously launching ESF’s energy policy enterprise data product, EnerKnol Data, only burnished a growing profile established during a decade of experience at global banks including Barclays Capital, Citigroup and Lazard.

Anyone involved even marginally with New York Energy Week has grown to admire the drive and detail orientation of Energy Solutions Forum’s Bjorklund. She is that unusual combination of a marketing professional, a startup veteran and an energy expert. She was in commodities sales trading at Macquarie, then joined another former Macquarie power trader as the first hire at Viridian.
