Tom Wineman, Chief Executive & Technology Officer
Clean Energy Design founder, Tom Wineman, brings over twenty five years of comprehensive technical experience in renewable energy systems and energy efficiency. He began with the study of the early practices of wind and solar power as well as efficiency measures; and observed the positive convergence of these technologies. Tom has acquired a deep understanding of how these systems can be put into practical use. He has completed scores of successful installations in institutional, educational and residential buildings, which attest to his capacity and quality of work. He is a specialist in site analysis, system design and installation of multiple renewable energy system types including photovoltaic, wind energy, and solar thermal.
Tom and his company have installed numerous battery backed and off grid solar systems starting in the late 90’s. Beginning in 2002, he designed and installed three types of off-grid renewable energy systems for Race Point Light Station in Provincetown, MA. His company installed a solar PV, small wind energy system and solar thermal hot water system over the course of several years. In addition, he has specified and installed numerous stand-alone and grid interactive battery backed systems, including a community garden water supply project in Sandwich, MA. In 2004, at Waquoit Bay Research Reserve, Tom designed and installed a stand-alone solar powered pathway, area and security lighting system.
In addition to such technical work, Tom has also assisted in developing policy and model zoning to lower barriers and facilitate the implementation of wind power and other renewable energy technologies. He has been a key member of several local environmental & clean energy advocacy organizations. He was also instrumental in the development of early Massachusetts renewable energy incentive programs such as the Solar-To-Market Initiative and the adaptation of legislation that expands the versatility of net metering across the Commonwealth.
Tom’s commitment is further demonstrated by his dedication to providing educational outreach & workforce training for renewable technologies. He designed and developed a renewable energy demonstration trailer, which over the course of a decade appeared at dozens of schools and educational events. He has instructed a number of photovoltaic, solar thermal system, and wind training workshops for all types of students. He also has participated in NAPCEP certification workshops and served on the exam committee for the development of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) solar thermal certification program.
