Energy Systems Integration Group Elects Four New Board Members

03 May 2018

The Energy Systems Integration Group (ESIG) has announced four new members of its board, following a recent nomination and election process. The new board members were introduced during ESIG’s annual membership meeting held in conjunction with the group’s 2018 Spring Technical Workshop.

The board of directors serve as industry ambassadors for ESIG and collectively oversee and ensure the association’s operations and strategic growth plan.

The newly elected board members are:

  • Ric O’Connell, Executive Director, GridLab
  • Elizabeth (Beth) LaRose, General Manager, GE Energy Consulting, GE Power
  • William D. D’haeseleer, Full Professor & Director of the University of Leuven Energy Institute, KU Leuven, Belgium
  • Mark McGranaghan, Vice President, Integrated Grid, EPRI

“These individuals have made invaluable contributions to the renewable energy industry over many years. We are delighted and honored to have them join our board,” said Mark Ahlstrom, ESIG Board President. “As ESIG continues to grow and evolve, we’ll lean on their extensive industry knowledge and expertise in helping us fulfill our mission of charting the future of energy systems integration and operations.”

Earlier this year, the Energy Systems Integration Group changed its name from Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group (UVIG), reflecting the non-profit educational association’s support for electric energy systems with higher levels of clean energy and emerging opportunities for coordination between electricity systems, natural gas systems, transportation systems, and a wide range of other energy and infrastructure pathways.
