As Vice President, Energy Efficiency for Eversource, Tilak Subrahmanian oversees one of the largest energy efficiency portfolios in the industry. He leads a team that is focused on scaling energy efficiency to drive aggressive reductions in energy use. Eversource’s energy efficiency programs serve more than 3.5 million electric and natural gas customers in three New England states. Eversource’s Energy Efficiency team also works closely with business partners and communities to help shape strong, environmentally sound energy policy.
In support of the scaling efforts, Tilak led discussions with Massachusetts banks and credit unions to roll out financing mechanisms to encourage customer investments in energy efficiency. That effort has resulted in roughly $250 million of private financing capital being invested in energy efficiency in the state in just the last three years. Tilak has also been a judge of the MIT Clean Energy Prize (CEP), a business plan competition focused on significantly accelerating the pace of energy innovation and entrepreneurship.
Previously, Tilak was at Arthur D. Little and at Thomson Reuters. He has an extensive background in Corporate Strategy and New Business ventures, working with executives in different industries to drive top-line growth and performance. He also has successfully launched and operated new business ventures for several companies.
Tilak earned an MBA from the University of Michigan, a MS Engineering from the University of Washington, and B.Tech Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.
