Tracy O’Rourke - CEO - Vivid Edge
Vivid Edge (VE) is making energy efficiency compelling for large organisations with a pioneering 'energy efficiency as a service' model. VE provides capital for energy efficient equipment and ongoing maintenance (heating, cooling, lighting, control systems & more). Customers simply pay a monthly service fee that is often lower than the immediate energy savings.
With a multinational background in financial services and corporate development and high growth aircraft leasing, Tracy believed in a better model to make energy efficiency possible. She founded Vivid Edge in 2015 and has been joined by co-founders Paul Boylan and Eimear Cahalin.
