A weekly lecture series that highlights leaders in the sustainable global enterprise industry. With topics ranging from food to energy these speakers will cover it all. 

Nicholas Zuba is an energy efficiency and environmental policy professional with a decade of experience working on environmental sustainability efforts in different communities in the Northeastern United States, specializing in deploying Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing for property owners to make energy-saving improvements.

Presently, Nicholas works with the Connecticut Green Bank as a Senior Manager on the Commercial, Industrial, and Institutional Programs team, serving as the Program Manager of C-PACE. For nearly four years, he has managed this program’s daily operations and constructs projects to provide financing for energy-saving improvements in commercial and industrial buildings in the state of Connecticut. In addition, he serves as an advisor to IncentiFind, a Houston, TX-based start-up company that manages the nation’s largest energy efficiency incentive database.

Nicholas previously worked for Town of Babylon Government in Long Island, NY for over six years. In 2011, he became an administrator of the town’s Long Island Green Homes Program, one of the first operational residential PACE programs in the country that provides homeowners with financing to reduce their energy usage. He expanded the program’s outreach efforts and refined its policies, increasing demand for Green Homes’ services. 

Nicholas has been a recipient of two accolades from the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) for his work in the environmental sustainability field. In 2014, he received their first EDF Best Business Case Fellowship Award for his work as an EDF Climate Corps Fellow with CA Technologies, Inc. He is also a recipient of EDF’s William K. Bowles, Jr. Award for Leadership in 2017 for his continued guidance to the EDF Climate Corps Program and his positive contributions to environmental sustainability efforts. 

Nicholas earned his Master of Public Administration degree from the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA) at Cornell University in 2015, focusing on environmental sustainability program design and management. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Ithaca College in 2006.
