“It’s time to tackle the enormous challenge of the energy transition by connecting companies and candidates to resources so we can reduce the time and capital it takes to recruit and reskill,” says Katie Mehnert, founder and CEO of ALLY Energy.
HOUSTON (PRWEB) July 20, 2021
ALLY Energy, the online platform for the energy workforce, announces it has acquired Clean Energy Social, the jobs and networking community for the clean energy industry.
The addition of Clean Energy Social expands ALLY's platform to unite solar, wind, power, oil and gas, power and utilities, biofuels, hydrogen, geothermal, carbon capture, and other segments contributing to the energy transition.
The acquisition also makes ALLY the largest integrated energy site for driving inclusion through career resources, content, training, events, networking, and sharing across the entire energy space. This gives customers the most comprehensive source for connecting diverse talent and innovation required for the energy transition.
“It’s time to tackle the enormous challenge of the energy transition by connecting companies and candidates to resources so we can reduce the time and capital it takes to recruit and reskill,” says Katie Mehnert, founder and CEO of ALLY Energy. “We can speed up decarbonization by centralizing resources into one digital experience. This acquisition is a much-needed human capital investment to advance net-zero goals.”
"We are very excited that our efforts will help support ALLY’s continued exponential growth,” said Jesse Truax of Clean Energy Social. “ALLY’s unique position as an energy integrator and source for diverse talent to advance decarbonization, combined with our careers platform and clean energy audience, amplifies the value that we can provide to our customers across the energy industry.”
With the United States now spearheading the global economic recovery, energy companies are among those scrambling to find the highest quality candidates. ALLY is the digital platform for businesses of all sizes to post jobs and find qualified talent. And it will serve as a home base for career seekers to find meaningful jobs and training opportunities to re-skill and upskill for an equitable energy transition. In a recent meeting with U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, and several Congressional leaders who toured ALLY’s office at Greentown Labs, Mehnert explained that “fragmented job sites, training, networks, and tools won’t deliver climate action or inclusiveness quickly enough.”
Shanta Eaden, ALLY’s recently appointed Chief Operating Officer, says, “This acquisition doubles the size of our community and marks the opportunity to build human insights into our product to ensure candidates are well-matched with a company. We’re excited about the future of our roadmap and look forward to continued growth.”
