Perry Bakas

Business Development Analyst, AES Distributed Energy


Experienced Project Manager and Design Engineer with a demonstrated history of working in the Product Design and Renewable Energy Industries.

After getting my B.E. in Mechanical engineering, I was lucky enough to get experience as a lead design engineer and then eventually a sustainable package designer. Unfortunately, the more that I learned about the manufacturing industry, the better I got at recognizing greenwashing first hand. The deeper I looked into the supply chain, the more blemishes on sustainability and ethicality I found. So, I decided to jump ship on my rotational program and get into renewables without any prior experience. 2 years later, and I am extremely happy with my move and would love to help other people follow their passions.
