Diamond Appointed Chair of Women of Wind Energy's New York/New Jersey Chapter

NEW YORK, NJ - Kimberly E. Diamond of Berkeley Heights, NJ has recently been appointed as Chair of the New York/New Jersey Chapter of Women of Wind Energy (WoWE).  Professionals from all areas of the wind industry, including investment bankers, lawyers, consultants, and developers, belong to this chapter, as do professionals who are interested in the wind industry and the renewable energy sector generally.

Diamond, an attorney with Lowenstein Sandler LLP in the firm’s New York City office, has held a number of influential positions in the NY/NJ WoWE Chapter and in the national WoWE organization for over five years.  In addition to serving on WoWE’s National Mentoring Steering Committee for several years, she has mentored professionals and graduate students in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and San Diego, CA.  She received the 2011 Outstanding Mentor of the Year Award during the inaugural year of such award.

A recognized thought leader in the wind energy area, Diamond is well-known for her publications and presentations with respect to offshore and onshore wind energy topics, as well as other topics in the energy and environment area.  She has delivered approximately 30 presentations, including several presentations at the American Wind Energy Association’s (AWEA’s) WINDPOWER and AWEA’s Offshore WINDPOWER conferences.  She has also published approximately 25 articles in numerous scholarly journals, trade press publications, and law.  Her articles have appeared in North American Windpower, Electric Light & Power, Natural Resources & Environment, and North American Clean Energy.  The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit cited Diamond’s article on wind wakes and wake effect impacts in Circuit Judge Posner’s Opinion in Muscarello v. Winnebago County Board, 702 F.3d 909, 911 (7th Cir. 2012).  She has been recognized in Energy Law360 and Environmental Law360 for moderating a program about offshore wind and electric grid resiliency and modernization. Most recently, Diamond was quoted in North American Windpower with respect to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities’ (BPU’s) decision not to approve a 25 MW offshore wind demonstration project off New Jersey’s Atlantic City coast.

Diamond also holds several leadership positions in the American Bar Association’s (ABA’s) Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources.  She is Co-Chair of the Renewable, Alternative, and Distributed Energy Resources (RADER) Committee, and is a Vice Chair of the Energy, Environmental Markets, and Finance (EEMF) Committee.

Holding the role as head of the NY/NJ WoWE Chapter is something to which Diamond is looking forward, as it will provide her with the opportunity to share her knowledge and enthusiasm about the wind industry with others.  She encourages anyone with an interest in the wind industry or renewable energy generally to consider attending a WoWE event.  For more information about the NY/NY WoWE Chapter, please contact Diamond directly at

A number of employers dangle a lump sum offer to employees in part to remove future liabilities from their balance sheets. It’s tempting for ...
