Concord, NH – Tony Giunta, director of project development at Nobis Group based in Concord, was recently named Clean Energy Champion of the Year at the Clean Energy New Hampshire (CENH) Annual Awards.
CENH is a non-profit organization focused on promoting clean energy and technologies through education and advocacy for a stronger economic future. The organization’s Champion of the Year Award recognizes individuals who demonstrate leadership roles in the transition to a clean energy future.
Giunta, who is currently serving his fourth term as Mayor of the city of Franklin, was honored to accept the award. Throughout his career, Giunta’s major area of interest has been the renewable energy market.
Giunta has devoted nearly three decades of his life to protecting our environment. Through his many roles at the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, he not only oversaw the cleanup of contaminated sites, but also worked with businesses and municipalities to prevent future environmental degradation. But his passion has always been in the energy sector. That passion led him to become the founder of American Energy Independence Company, a New Hampshire-based firm that manufactures environmentally-friendly, renewable non-petroleum-based products.
In his current role at the Nobis Group, Giunta works with developers, elected officials, regulators, and contractors to create alternative energy solutions that better the communities they serve. In his role as Mayor, Giunta has actively supported efforts to bring clean, affordable, renewable energy to New Hampshire and the rest of New England.
