EnerQuality Corp. announced the appointment of Monica Curtis as President and CEO. An industry-recognized energy efficiency champion, she will assume responsibilities effective immediately.
EnerQuality has a long history supporting the industry at times of important change, and Curtis joins the organization at a pivotal time, when demand for demonstrating superior building performance and for workforce development supporting net zero and emerging technologies is creating opportunities to reimagine services and delivery.
More than 25 years of experience
EnerQuality is welcoming this industry inflection point with next-level leadership. Curtis brings more than 25 years of Canadian and U.S. market experience working with governments, utilities, businesses, and organizations to improve energy use. Most recently, Curtis served as CEO of Energy Efficiency Alberta, where the agency achieved $952 million in economic growth for the province in just over three years. As executive vice-president, Strategic Development and Energy Finance Solutions with a leader in efficiency programs based in Wisconsin, she oversaw the delivery of residential building science training, contractor-delivered energy efficiency programs and efficiency financing for electric and natural gas utilities, and governments across the U.S. Recognized as one of Canada’s Clean 50 in 2020, she participates in advisory board and expert panels ranging from the Climate Innovation Fund (a Low Carbon Cities Canada Initiative) to Efficiency Canada to Red Deer College’s Alternative Energy Lab.
Unprecedented market opportunity
Connie Carras, chair of EnerQuality Corp.’s board of directors, welcomed Curtis to the company. “At a time of unprecedented market opportunity and environmental imperatives, Monica takes the company confidently into the future as its president and CEO. She has the vision and strategy to lead market transformation, support the housing industry and Canada’s successful transition to a low carbon economy,” says Carras. “As a client, market and people-focused leader, she will be instrumental in driving new value creation for the benefit of EnerQuality, our Clients, Partners, Sponsors and Canadian homeowners. More than ever, EnerQuality is positioned for the future. More than ever, we are stronger together.”
“I’m honoured to take on this role at a time of unprecedented momentum in building energy efficiency and decarbonization,” says Curtis. “EnerQuality supports builders, renovators, and developers build better homes and provide meaningful work in their communities. I look forward to working with the staff, delivery partners, Board, building industry and broader network to advance building science in Ontario and across Canada, to benefit all Canadians.”
