    The Environmental Markets Association (EMA) Board of Directors voted for Laura Duklewski, a Senior Manager of Trading at Constellation, to serve the remaining term of long-standing Board Member, Joe Roenbeck of PSEG.

    Mr. Roenbeck has been a Board member for over a decade and a dedicated Gold Corporate member. Mr. Roenbeck was pivotal in creating and maintaining the highly acclaimed Regional Round Table series and has been a mainstay on panels at EMA Webinars and Annual Meetings. 

    The EMA Board and membership will greatly miss Joe and are excited to have Ms. Duklewski add her perspective and extensive industry knowledge to the association at a time where the industry and organization are positioned for major growth. Ms. Duklewski brings over 18 years of experience in environmental trading and portfolio management across U.S. environmental markets with a specific focus on PJM renewables and voluntary clean product offerings. 

    “I can’t say enough about how thankful and grateful I am for Joe. Joe's 10+ years of dedicated service to EMA allowed us to get through some really hard times," said EMA Board President Jack Velasquez of Marex Spectron. “We know that there are big shoes to fill, but anyone that knows Laura Duklewski, knows how much talent experience she brings to elevate EMA and these markets.” 

    Additional EMA Board Members include Jack Velasquez of Marex Spectron, Sean Barwin of CBL Markets, Christian Hofer of Sol Systems, Stephen McComb of Incubex, Lance Titus of Uniper and Ken Nelson of Blue Delta Energy.

    With just a few days of 2021 left, we thought we’d highlight just a few moments from this past year that stood out to us here at Delta. Of course, we can’t capture it all in one blog post: every community workshop, every tree planted, every soil health test …
