Vice President, Distributed Energy Resources
In 2014 David Sandbank joined NYSERDA to run Governor Cuomo’s $1 billion NY-Sun initiative and has overseen the largest year-over-year growth of solar in New York State. David’s past experience as a solar developer brought real market experience and industry perspective to turn the program into a true private / public partnership. Since David has joined the program he has brought about many changes focusing on programmatic efficiency, lowering costs for solar developers and making solar available for all New Yorkers. As a result, PV installed capacity has increased over 390% and costs have come down by 33%.
Vice President Innovation
John Lochner joined NYSERDA as Vice President, Innovation in 2019. John Lochner founded Headland Advisors, which advises on and structures investments in sustainability-focused opportunities.
