David F. Ciarlone, PE

David has a well-established track record of leveraging nationally recognized expertise in energy, public policy, negotiation, engineering and team leadership to create concrete, innovative, and sustainable business advantages. His clients benefit from results achieved at both the state and federal level. 

While employed by a Fortune 250 global manufacturer, David was responsible for all North American energy contracts and produced over $80 million in spend reductions or cost avoidances while also supporting international projects. His ability to build, lead, and sustain collaborative work teams among peers enabled him to deliver various energy projects internally while also leading industry-wide efforts as President or thought-leader in state and federal industrial groups. 

In addition to supply chain gains, David secured or created economic development incentives for growth projects, as well as business retention initiatives. He successfully led legislative efforts to ensure federal and state policies and laws, supported energy-intensive manufacturing, and managed the litigation of several rate cases and other causes to ensure that FERC and various state commissions faithfully enforced those policies and laws. David honed particular expertise in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia and most significantly in Iowa, where he was appointed to a stakeholder group to develop a new Iowa State Energy Plan. 

David is prepared to help energy-intensive clients find a competitive advantage among the many social, political, market and technical pressures driving profound change in the energy space by deploying the following strengths: 

  • Energy Policy as Critical Business Strategy 

  • Energy strategy development for a location or a business 

  • Tariff structures, rate analysis, and wholesale markets 

  • An engineer’s grasp of process and infrastructure 

  • Negotiating and managing contracts 

  • Unbundling and re-optimizing supply arrangements 

  • Expert witness testimony 

  • Executing regulatory and legislative initiatives 


When he is not working, David enjoys staying current on news and public policy, studying history and technology, catching a baseball game or spending time at home in Pittsburgh with his wife, Gail, of 36 years, or visiting their three grown children.
