Peabody, Mass.-based Energi, a provider of risk management and insurance programs for the energy industry, said Christopher Lohmann has joined the company as vice president of Alternative Energy Solutions (AES). Previously, Lohmann was a senior finance policy advisor at the Department of Energy, where he led the development of finance policy for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
While at DOE, Lohmann led programs to drive private capital investment in advanced domestic clean energy technologies. He assisted state and local governments with more than 100 energy financing programs utilizing federal funds, which helped to raise more than $1 billion of committed private capital.
“During my time at the Department of Energy, I helped to create a shift in public and private attitudes towards renewable energy and energy efficiency—but there’s still a long road ahead,” said Lohmann.
As vice president of AES, Lohmann will manage Energi’s AES Warranty Programs—which recently announced projects in Hawaii and Toronto—as well as program development, business development and building strategic relationships. He will work with Energi’s partners, insurance brokers/agents, policyholders and various stakeholders across the market, including banks and financial institutions that lend on renewable and energy efficiency projects.
