Our world is becoming more electric and that electricity needs to be safe, reliable, efficient, sustainable and connected. A comprehensive, thoughtful energy policy will move us forward as a nation in establishing a secure energy future that also creates jobs and drives U.S. competitiveness.
My role with Schneider Electric supports policy that advances the energy revolution and encourages new innovations like the connected technologies that reshape industries, transform cities, and enrich lives. As a member of the High Performance Building Council, I have the pleasure of helping cities set building efficiency goals as well as educating states on the importance of electrical safety codes. NEMA drives technical, consensus-based standards that prevent serious injuries and death, and are in the best interests of the industry and users.
NEMA brings together talented energy professionals and I am delighted to be one of them.
