SmartGrid Today reported Advanced Energy Economy's announcement that executives of nine market-leading firms joined its board of directors to support the national business group's efforts to accelerate the growth of secure, clean, affordable energy in the US. The nation's advanced energy market totals over $200 billion in revenue, about equal to pharmaceutical manufacturing and approaching wholesale consumer electronics – and supports over 3 million US workers, AEE said.
The AEE Institute, the educational and research affiliate of AEE, added two new board members, too:
- Matt Rogers, co-founder and chief product officer at Nest Labs and partner at Incite Ventures, an investor in mission-based enterprises; and
- Tim Healy, former chairman and CEO at EnerNOC, a DR and energy management leader.
