Expanding its presence in the Northeastern United States, energy advisory firm 5 has acquired Allenhurst, New Jersey-based Luthin Associates, an energy management consultant in the New York tristate area.
For the last 25 years, Luthin Associates has provided a wide array of energy consulting services to major industry sectors throughout the country, with a particularly strong footprint in the Northeast. The firm focuses on energy procurement and risk management, energy efficiency and sustainability, and regulatory affairs.
5, with operations throughout the United States and Mexico, offers strategic advice on a wide variety of energy related matters including procurement, demand management, renewable energy and rate optimization for public entities and private-sector businesses.
"Catherine Luthin has been a pioneer in energy management. She had the foresight – long before
others – to start a firm that would help institutional clients manage their energy usage and costs today
and for the future," said Brian Hayduk, Chief Executive Officer of 5 and one of its founding partners. "Catherine has been at the forefront of energy policy and energy services for decades, and her
leadership, in particular, has led to the development of numerous long-term client relationships with
globally recognized hospitals, universities and businesses. She is a trailblazer and innovator in the
industry. Unlike other energy management firms, the depth of her firm’s services includes
representation in proceedings related to utility tariffs and regional power grid operations. We are
thrilled to have her and the Luthin Associates team as part of our organization."
Catherine will not only remain in her role as President of Luthin Associates but will also take on the
expanded role of Managing Director at 5, helping foster expanded client services.
"By combining forces with 5, Luthin Associates now offers its clients a broader suite of resources and
technology, along with a deep bench of talent across the energy spectrum," said Ms. Luthin.
