Ecosystem Energy Services is very proud to announce that design engineer Jean-Philippe “JP” Drouin has been awarded Young Energy Professional of the Year 2016 by the US Association of Energy Engineers. The honor was presented to him at the World Energy Engineering Conference in Washington DC on September 21.
The award is granted annually to an individual 35 years of age or younger to recognize outstanding contributions to the energy profession and to the community.
JP joined Ecosystem nine years ago, after receiving his degree in mechanical engineering from McGill University. With Ecosystem, he has been responsible for leading multi-million-dollar projects and proposals in Canada and the US for more than 100 healthcare, educational, commercial, municipal and industrial buildings. His projects include the Beth Israel Brooklyn Hospital project, an innovative cogeneration and steam-to-hot-water conversion that won AEE’s 2013 Energy Project of the Year Award.
In the US, he is an active member of the NYC distributed generation (DG) community and in 2013 participated in an initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability to identify a strategic roadmap for DG development in NYC.
With this award, JP’s American peers are recognizing his innovative approach to energy efficiency engineering. “I am fortunate to work with Ecosystem’s multidisciplinary teams, which encourage creative thinking and exceeding expectations of what we can achieve in terms of efficiency and cost savings,” Drouin said.
