About Orennia

“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”

         –  Marcus Aurelius

There are few times in history when society faced a test so critical, it forced us to align on a common objective. We are confronting such a moment today: the fight against climate change. Reducing CO2 emissions is the foremost (and perhaps sole) solution to this challenge. A transition to renewable electricity as our primary power source is what stands in the way of reducing CO2 emissions. At Orennia, we believe what stands in the way becomes the way.

The year 2020 saw unprecedented investment in new wind and solar projects. Annual investment in new power generation is expected to double by 2030 as America decarbonizes its energy stack.

With trillions of dollars in capital needed, Orennia helps investors make confident and informed decisions using data, analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
