Last week, Andrew Gilligan, Sol Systems’ Senior Associate, visited Georgetown University to speak in an energy career panel hosted by the International Business Diplomacy Program and the Center for German and European Studies. Andrew spoke alongside Tom Cunningham, Energy and Diplomacy Officer at the Bureau of Energy Resources at State, and Kevin Massy, Director of International Affairs at Statoil.
During the panel, Andrew talked about his time at Georgetown Energy, a student-run clean energy action group based in Washington, D.C. and how this experience first sparked his interest in renewable energies. While addressing students that want to start careers in the energy field, Andrew emphasized the importance of networking and displaying interest and knowledge in the field. Understanding the company and making your resume and cover letter professional and tailored to the company you are applying to are essential for success in the application process.
In 2011, Andrew started at Sol Systems and has gained a great deal of experience in the field since then. He is currently a Senior Associate and helps lead the Investor Advisory Group. As part of this team, he assists renewable energy investors across the United States to successfully deploy capital into solar projects.
