ENGIE North America's Ken Cowan on its transformation and integration of acquired companies

Ken Cowan, vice president at ENGIE North America, says the energy company, which has a legacy in traditional energy sources, is committed to renewables, "both wind, solar and services to really meet our customers' needs."

ENGIE, which has been going through a transformation toward zero carbon, has over 160,000 employees in 70 countries. "It's actually walking the talk and putting our money where it counts in relation to sustainability, wind, solar service companies to really create an environment where we're providing those solutions to our customers," Cowan said.

Cowan also spoke with GreenBiz Group President Pete May about its partnerships with a couple U.S. universities — Ohio State University and University of Iowa.
