About Orennia

“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”

  • Marcus Aurelius


There are very few times in history where society has faced a critical test that forced us to align around a common objective. We are confronting such a moment today: the fight against climate change. Reducing CO2 emissions is the primary (and perhaps sole) solution. A transition to renewable sources of energy as our primary power source is what stands in the way in reducing CO2 emissions.  At Orennia, we believe what stands in the way becomes the way.


2022 saw the most investments ever in new wind and solar projects. As North America de-carbonizes its energy stack, the annual investment in new power generation is expected to double by 2030.


With trillions in capital needing to be deployed, Orennia helps investors make more informed decisions using data, analytics, and machine learning/artificial intelligence.

At Orennia, you will become part of a collaborative culture and do work that matters. As a company enabling the energy transition, we believe that a diversity of perspectives generates better solutions. We trust and support each other, ask hard questions and solve complex problems.
