Emma Konet, who serves as Key Capture Energy’s Director of Market Strategy and Operations, has been announced as a Forbes 30 Under 30: Energy honoree for 2023! This year’s list highlights some 600 innovators across 20 different categories who are tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges.
Getting her start on Citigroup’s power trading desk, Emma was captivated by trading markets, clean energy, and storage assets – and was eager to roll up her sleeves to get into the energy storage space. She leads Key Capture Energy’s Market Ops team to devise the many ways the company’s energy storage resources can be optimized and dispatched across the New York and Texas energy grids.
“If you can solve the energy problem, you can solve every problem,” said Emma of tackling challenges in this industry and amidst the larger hurdles with climate change. She believes that with new technology and approaches, energy trading and utilization of storage resources will fundamentally change – something she says makes the sector an exciting space to build a career.
Emma is also a fierce advocate for recruiting more women into the renewable energy sector and building a more inclusive and diverse workforce – values she says attracted her to work at Key Capture Energy. She aims to be a mentor to other young women interested in pursuing this field of work and recruit others to join her in helping build a better and more sustainable world through clean energy.
