Founder and CEO
Mo is the Founder and CEO of WindESCo. He is passionate about applying data science and sensing to solve challenges faced by the operating wind assets. A problem solver at heart, he founded WindESCo to realize his vision of providing a comprehensive optimization solution for wind farms.
Prior to WindESCo, Mo worked as the head of the analytics group at First Wind supporting development and operation of more than 16 wind farms on USA. It was while working at First Wind and seeking optimization solutions that he became aware of an urgent need in the market for a company like WindESCo.
As the Director of Technology at WindESco, Nathan is responsible for R&D and product implementation. Nathan brings to WindESCo 10 years of experience in experimental applied mechanics, hands-on system implementation, data acquisition, and statistical uncertainty analysis. Prior to joining WindESco, Nathan worked as a project engineer at Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Systems Technology (IWES) in Bremerhaven Germany where he commissioned a new laboratory for structural testing of wind turbine blades up to 70 m in length. Subsequently, Nathan returned to the US and continued structural testing of wind turbine blades and research in test methodology while working for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Stationed at the Wind Technology Testing Center in Boston MA, Nathan again commissioned a new test facility, trained the engineers and technicians, and worked to develop new test hardware, data acquisition software, and test control algorithm. Nathan holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering with Honors from Clarkson University and MS and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech.
