WattTime Executive Director Gavin McCormick Named to Environment+Energy Leader 100 List
Oakland, Calif.—11 December 2020—Today WattTime announced that co-founder and executive director Gavin McCormick has been named to the 2020 Environment+Energy Leader 100 list (E+E 100). This fourth annual E+E 100 recognizes “those environment and energy ‘doers’ who break trail in creating new solutions, programs, platforms, best practices and products to help their companies—or other companies—achieve greater success in commercial and industrial environment and energy management.”
“There are so many smart, passionate people doing great work in the broad arena of corporate sustainability. I’m honored to be in their company as part of the 2020 list,” said McCormick. “But this is really more a testament to the work of the entire team at WattTime—and our partners. Today’s era of climate action seems to be increasingly driven by team collaboration, like the hundreds of scientists around the world from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) who shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.”
This year’s diverse honorees come from companies representing the energy sector (3Degrees, Ameresco, Edison Energy, Enel, Public Service Company of New Mexico, Schneider Electric), transportation (Airbus, Cathay Pacific, General Motors, Rivian), finance (Mastercard, Wells Fargo), food and beverage (Anheuser-Busch, Clif Bar, HEB, Jackson Family Wines, Kroger, Perdue Farms, Tim Hortons, Xanterra), big box and virtual retailers (Amazon, The Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart), NGOs (Billion Oyster Project, Carbon Disclosure Project, World Resources Institute), and beyond (Comcast NBCUniversal, DaVita, Procter & Gamble, Trane, Verizon, Whirlpool).
McCormick’s E+E 100 recognition comes on the heels of Climate TRACE—of which WattTime is a cofounder—being named to TIME’s list of Best Inventions of 2020.
WattTime is a nonprofit with a software tech startup DNA, dedicated to giving everyone everywhere the power to choose clean energy. We invented Automated Emissions Reduction (AER), which allows utilities, IoT device and energy storage companies, and any end user to effortlessly reduce emissions from energy, when and where they happen. Our cutting-edge insights and algorithms, coupled with machine learning, can shift the timing of flexible electricity use to sync with times of cleaner energy and avoid times of dirtier energy. We sell solutions that make it easy for anyone to achieve emissions reductions without compromising cost and user experience. WattTime was founded by PhD researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, and in 2017 became a subsidiary of Rocky Mountain Institute. WattTime is a founding member of Climate TRACE, a global coalition working together to monitor nearly all human-caused GHG emissions worldwide independently and in real time.
