Our purpose is to use energy to positively impact people and the planet

Our Mission

Our mission is to manage a $500M portfolio of energy spending, with 20% of that spending related to efficiency and sustainability services by December 31st, 2028.


DNE was started by two determined friends with a better way to help customers take charge of their energy. Founded in 2009, DNE has since grown to become one of the largest energy management firms with more than $250M of energy spending under management. And we’re just getting started.


We believe that making money and doing good are not mutually exclusive, but are necessarily correlated if you have a long, comprehensive outlook. Doing right by our team, customers, partners, and communities creates more business value and influences them to do the same and pay it forward. This virtuous cycle can inspire others to do the same. As that spreads, anything is possible.

Our Values

What we live by

Energy Management Firm

Do the right thing

This is the Platinum Rule: we strive to treat others as they would like to be treated. When the interests of stakeholders are not aligned, we’re passionate about finding true win-win solutions. In the end, doing right by each stakeholder results in a stronger and more valuable business.

Energy Management Firm

Stay hungry, stay humble

Staying hungry means we constantly strive to add more value, to innovate, to fight dogma and to improve upon our previous best. Staying humble means that even as we celebrate the major wins we recognize that it takes a great team with great partners and customers to achieve great wins and we are grateful for all of the conditions that make success possible.

Energy Management Firm

Mind. Body. Family. Business.

To experience true wellness, we need to honour our priorities in this order: Mind, Body, Family, Business, and Community. Think of it as a pyramid with each important element resting on the one below it. It all starts with mental fitness, which is necessary to sustain physical health and enjoy quality time with loved ones. Then comes business, an opportunity to drive positive impact and express our unique gifts. Finally, this solid foundation gives us times and resources to pour back into the communities we care about.

Energy Management Firm

Together we give back

Every year, we donate 0.5% of revenue or 5% of net income whichever is greater to our Social Impact Fund. We donate this budget in a variety of ways: food drives, LED lighting and other energy infrastructure projects for local nonprofits (food banks, women’s shelters, youth centres, animal shelters, etc.), and other infrastructure projects we complete when visiting other countries for our Annual Bonus trip.

Together we are

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion. They’re more than just words for us. They’re the principles guiding how we build our teams, cultivate leaders and create a company that’s the right fit for every person inside of it.
