Daniel Tunnicliff

With over three decades of experience in the utility industry, I am a Regional VP of Sales at Opower, part of Oracle Energy and Water, where I lead a team of sales directors who help utilities use AI, disaggregation, and behavioral science to achieve their decarbonization and sustainability goals.

As a registered civil engineer and a holder of a master’s degree in civil engineering, I have a strong technical background and analytical skills that enable me to communicate effectively and persuasively with diverse audiences, from large, complex, and political customers, to regulators, and elected officials. I have a proven track record of delivering innovative and customized solutions that meet their needs and expectations, while enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

I am passionate about helping utilities and their customers adopt clean energy programs and solutions, reduce peak load, shift demand, and deliver water and energy efficiency products. I have also successfully restructured and coached several organizations and teams, improving their performance, efficiency, and culture. I am always looking for new opportunities and challenges to leverage my expertise and leadership skills to help utilities in the rapidly evolving energy and water sector.
