WASHINGTON, D.C. – Howard Gugel, NERC’s vice president of Engineering and Standards, has been appointed to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Electricity Advisory Committee (EAC) by U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. The EAC, which reports to the DOE’s Assistant Secretary for Electricity and meets three times a year to advise DOE on a variety of electricity issues, includes 37 members from across the energy community, including state and Regional Entities, utilities, cyber security and national security firms, the natural gas sector, equipment manufacturers, construction and architectural companies, non-governmental organizations and other electricity-related organizations.
During their two-year term, EAC members advise DOE on current and future electric grid reliability, resilience, security, sector interdependence and policy issues. They periodically review and make recommendations on DOE electric grid-related programs and initiatives, including electricity-related research and development programs and modeling efforts. Members also identify emerging issues related to electricity production and delivery and advise on federal coordination with utility industry authorities in the event of supply disruptions and other emergencies.
“I am honored to have been invited to join this esteemed group,” said Gugel. “I look forward to providing NERC’s perspective on important issues that the electric industry is facing.”
