Our capacity is just right.

Amanda Bogner

PE, BEMP, President

Amanda, founder and president, went to KU for Architectural Engineering (Rock Chalk Jayhawk) and believes beautiful architecture is inherently sustainable. Her passion is to make beautiful buildings energy efficient too. When the weather cooperates, you can find her cycling or cross country skiing. 

Annie Koch

PE, Project Manager

Annie Koch is Energy Studio’s resident world traveler. She isn’t your average tourist, though; Annie spent a year studying abroad in Germany (where she took engineering classes in German – autsch!) and taught English in Thailand for another. She loves learning about people and experiencing different ways of life, and has the heavily stamped passport to prove it.


Nick Mandel

PE, Senior Energy Analyst

Nick Mandel love to tinker. In his free time, he dissects machines and puts them back together, curious about what made them tick. His passion for figuring out how things worked naturally led him to engineering, which he studied at UNL. Today, Nick brings over a decade of professional mechanical engineering experience to his work at Energy Studio. When he isn’t solving energy puzzles, Nick stays active learning new skills and spending time in the great outdoors. He also enjoys running and hiking with his wife and their Weimaraner, Wheatie. 

Colin Miller

Energy Analyst

As long as he can remember, Colin has had a fascination with two things: buildings and the environment. Upon realizing these things could be combined into a career, working for Energy Studio was a no-brainer. Whether it is through his work as an Energy Analyst or by choosing to ride his electric skateboard instead of driving his car, Colin is constantly trying to make the world a greener place.

Alycia Noble

Project Manager

Some people are just destined to make the world a better place. Technically Alycia’s an energy analyst, but there’s a lot more to her story. With her Masters in Architectural Engineering from UNO/UNL, she’s passionate about saving energy, money, and the environment. Energy-awesomeness aside, she may not tell you that she’s also somewhat of a dog geek – serving as president of a local dog club, and training her German Shepherd, Hannah.

Jessica Renner

PE, BEMP, Project Manager

Jess is what you would call a total powerhouse. She went to UNO/UNL for Architectural Engineering, but that’s just the beginning. By day, Jess performs energy analysis; by night, you can catch her jammin’ with her (Omaha Entertainment Award nominated) band Edge of Arbor. You’d never guess that she’s a total gearhead, and used to help her dad build stock cars. Rock on!
