Jeremy Klingel

Senior Partner Energy & Utilities New York


The traditional utility model is evolving to address the reality of distributed energy, decarbonization, and digitization—but this evolution can’t happen in a vacuum. That’s where Jeremy comes in. He advises across the ecosystem, partnering with a broad spectrum of energy, utility, telecom, and transportation leaders to bring their strategies to life through commercially viable offerings. 

He has built and expanded capabilities for delivering infrastructure investment, distributed energy resources (DER) integration, resiliency, and digital solutions. 

His passion centers on the orchestration of a flexible energy and utility ecosystem that provides a sustainable, resilient, and economically viable service to its customers. He has led more than two dozen infrastructure modernization projects, crafting the road map to achieve advanced distribution management and end-user experience. 

He joined West Monroe in 2021 from PA Consulting, where he was head of Energy & Utility Advisory for the Americas. Previously, he was global leader of distributed infrastructure for Black & Veatch. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina and an executive certificate in leading strategic growth from Columbia Business School.

What makes Jeremy different

With a passion for ancient history and cultures, Jeremy has had the opportunity to live, work, and explore over a dozen countries throughout his career. When home, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children, immersed in the vibrance and diverse food, parks, and museums that New York City has to offer.

Where Jeremy makes an impact

He has authored numerous thought leadership on the integration of distributed energy resources, evolution of customer engagement, and impact of emerging technology on the utility industry.

A long-time supporter of Save the Children, Jeremy also sponsors the American Museum of Natural History.
