Emily Easley, CEO of Washington, D.C.-based NOVUS Energy Advisors, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

Since an early age, Easley has had a passion for the oil and gas business. A seventh-generation Texan, her father worked on the investment and finance side of the business and inspired her to enter the industry herself.

After finishing school, however, Easley would forge her own path in the energy business on the renewable side, ultimately launching NOVUS Energy Advisors, an independent consulting firm she founded to provide a bridge between the traditional and alternative energy markets.

“When I transitioned into the oil and gas business from the decade I’d spent in renewables, I identified a niche for a career path to work across the aisle,” Easley explained. “Since the early days of my passion to build a career in the energy business, I have always seen it through a technology neutral, all of the above lens.”

Earlier in her career, Easley spent a decade working with Washington, D.C.-based national clean energy associations, Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Smart Electric Power Association (SEPA). She would later join ERE Strategies, a renewable energy consulting practice where she worked with midstream and E&P companies to identify growth strategies in the renewable energy space.

“For nearly a decade, I’ve worked with energy businesses, large and small, sharing information for projections and opportunities in a rapidly changing space,” she said. “Sustainable projects and capitalism can go hand in hand; however, scale and speed are critical when also striving for great impact.”
