Regarding the recent award, Ms. Thorn Corthay thanked the Association of Energy Engineers as well as her nominator, Jon Feldman of the Independent Electricity System Operator, her family, clients, and partners stating “It is an immense honour to receive this prestigious award.  At Thorn Associates, we look forward to continuing to assist our clients in reducing their energy costs and carbon emissions through innovative technology and energy management practices.”

With COVID-19 economic recovery policies continuing to have a significant impact on energy use as well as more countries adopting carbon pricing, energy and carbon management are more important than ever.

At OSPE we’d like to congratulate Emily Thorn Corthay, P.Eng., on this outstanding achievement. Ms. Thorn Corthay has dedicated many hours to helping inform the policy work of the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers, and for that we are extremely grateful!
