Steve Piro is the founder and CEO of Synergy Efficiency Solutions (formerly Synergy Carbon). The company was recently recognised in Huffington Post as one of “Bali’s 10 Hottest Tech Startups” and Steve has been a featured speaker on Google Startup Grind.

An advocate for energy efficiency, Steve got his degree from the University of San Diego in Environmental Science and Economics, and after extensive travel through 42 countries he settled into Bali, founding Synergy in 2008. Since then, Steve has established Synergy Efficiency Solutions as Asia Pacific’s leading energy efficiency company.

SES was the lead energy consultant for the University of Multimedia Nusantara, which won the 2013 Award for most Energy Efficient Building in Indonesia and the ASEAN Award in 2014 for most Energy Efficient Building in South East Asia. SES was appointed as the Energy Efficiency consultant for the Indonesian Convention Exhibition (ICE), the largest Expo Center in South East Asia.

Steve has been very fortunate to attract an incredible and ambitious international team who collectively aims to redefine the Energy Efficiency landscape in Asia. SES is driving the growth of the Indonesian ESCO market by implementing a diverse portfolio of ESCOs and working closely with the Indonesian Ministry of Energy to develop ESCO laws for Indonesia.
