Ed is ready to help usher in our next phase of growth as we pioneer wind plant optimization across the globe.
Ed joins us from Sentient Science where he was General Manager of the Wind Business Operations. Sentient Science Corporation provides digital twin technology to extend the life of mechanical systems like wind turbines. He was instrumental in building Sentient's largest base of customers in North America, Europe and China.

“I like to be around builders of the new economy, the people who love building new technologies and products that move our economy forward, that create new jobs and that build wealth. Where energy crosses the internet is that new opportunity," said Ed.
Ed has been a featured speaker at CIMdata, PDMA and ASME’s Chemical Engineering Conference, American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), WindEurope, China Wind Energy Association (CWEA), China Bearing Industry Association (CBIA), and the American Helicopter Society (AHS). He holds a B.S. from Florida Institute of Technology in Space Sciences and Astrophysics.
According to Ed, he was excited to join WindESCo “because the team is trailblazing into the global renewables market, providing products and services that drive improved annual energy production from the thousands of wind turbines in the ground today, and in the new capacity being put in place both on and offshore. "
He continued, "For those operators that expected more from their wind assets, Windesco has developed the technology to get back the production you expected through innovative software and systems technology. I’m proud to be part of Windesco, to help wind operators globally, and to recruit the next next members of our team.”
