NEW YORK | Bright Power leaders, Andrea Mancino and Carmel Pratt, were elected to the Boards of Directors for two leading organizations driving sustainable buildings and industry education.
Andrea Mancino, Executive Vice President of New York for Bright Power, was elected to the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) Board of Directors. She previously served as Co-Chair for NESEA’s annual BuildingEnergy NYC conference — designed by and for practitioners in the fields of high-performance building design, energy efficiency, renewable energy, as well as building and energy policy. Committed to furthering education in the field, Andrea organized and led conference sessions for the past 8 years, including a session on New York State policy and programs pushing towards carbon neutral buildings. At Bright Power, Andrea oversees all of the teams that deliver services to buildings in the New York Metro area.
“I could not be more excited to contribute to NESEA’s mission as a Board Member,” said Andrea Mancino, Executive Vice President of New York for Bright Power. “NESEA plays a key role in driving a more sustainable future across the northeast.” Andrea was previously honored on the 2019 Environment + Energy Leader 100 list.
Carmel Pratt, Director of New Construction for Bright Power, was elected to the New York Passive House (NYPH) Board of Directors. Carmel has previously volunteered with NYPH on their annual conference and public project database efforts. She has been dedicated to furthering industry knowledge by leading conference sessions and lecturing at higher education institutions. Carmel joined Bright Power in 2020, where she manages the teams working on ground-up new construction, existing building rehabilitation and high-performance projects.
“Being elected to NYPH’s Board of Directors is an absolute honor. I look forward to working with and learning from other leaders to make net-zero/passive design and construction more accessible and help New York meet its climate goals,” said Carmel Pratt, Director of New Construction for Bright Power.
Beyond furthering industry knowledge through NESEA and NYPH, Andrea and Carmel are part of Bright Power’s internal diversity, equity and inclusion initiative – the Alliance of Multicultural People in Sustainability (AMPS). Both Andrea and Carmel have mentored young female professionals to increase female representation in the construction and commercial real estate industries.
“All of us at Bright Power could not be more proud of Andrea and Carmel or more thankful for their contributions to sustainability and the built environment,” stated Jeffrey Perlman, President and Founder of Bright Power. “NESEA and NYPH will greatly benefit from their expertise and dedication.”
