Management Team


MEREDITH ADLER, Executive Director

Meredith Headshot.jpg Meredith Adler is Student Energy's Executive Director. She oversees the strategy and operations of the organization and building a movement of students across the world committed to a sustainable energy future. Prior to taking over this role in 2015, Meredith acted as the Global Community Manager for Student Energy, where she developed the chapters model and managed online content and communities. 

Meredith is passionate about community, energy and strategy. She thrives in dynamic environments and loves to build bridges between solutions and people.

Prior to joining Student Energy, Meredith was Communications Coordinator for Clean Energy Canada where she project managed the Tracking the Energy Revolution report series, and kept all communications trains running on time. Before that she could be found doing anything from running a youth trail construction crew in the Cascades, to coaching a campus tours team, to working on youth leadership programming in Latin America. A degree in Geography from The University of British Columbia kickstarted Meredith’s obsession with energy and environmental policy.

If you can’t find Meredith in the office, she’s probably off on a mountaintop or hanging off the edge of a rock face somewhere - with her trusty dog Yoshi in tow. 



Kate Kerrane, Community Manager

Kate Kerrane Head shot.jpg Kate Kerrane is Student Energy’s Community Manager. An Irish native and a passionate 23-year-old, she is determined in helping Student Energy accelerator students into a sustainable energy future. Kate first became part of the Student Energy Movement at the 2015 International Student Energy Summit in Bali, Indonesia! Kate is a dynamic part of the Student Energy team bringing her entrepreneurial attitude, creativity and passion for energy to the organization. Prior to joining the team she studied electrical energy engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway, conducted research on tidal energy, and lead the University's Energy Society.

Currently, she is responsible for Student Energy’s community of young energy leaders around the world. She is overseeing Student Energy’s Chapter Model program global launch, that works to create campus level clubs dedicated to helping students and young people understand the global energy system. 

When she’s not working, Kate is always keeping up to date with new sustainable inventions. She is also a rugby fanatic, loving to both watch and play. She holds a vision on sustainable living by shopping in second-hand shops and having a plant based diet. Kate will most certainly continue to develop her skills and learn to become even more innovative and expose her to the possibilities and network with both students and world leaders of energy in their fields.
