Please join the New York Association for Energy Economics when we welcome back Frank Murray to our Thursday, January 12th, 2017 lunch.

Frank Murray will discuss the history of energy efficiency in New York State and its evolution under REV from the perspective of one who has been responsible for both the development and administration of such programs in New York. He will also discuss a perspective of what is/may be happening nationally and in other states.

Most recently, Mr. Murray served as President, CEO and acting Chair of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. Mr. Murray was a founding board member of both the New York State Smart Grid Consortium and the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST).

Currently he serves as a Strategic Adviser to First Fuel, Inc. a data analytics firm focused on energy efficiency, and as a consultant to the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York's Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) case. Mr. Murray has broad experience in the public sector having served as a Congressional staffer, a policy adviser to the Secretary of Energy in the Clinton Administration, and in a variety of senior energy policy positions for four New York Governors, including Commissioner of Energy under Governor Mario M Cuomo. He also spent nearly a decade as a senior adviser to the international environmental consulting firm Ecology and Environment, Inc. where he focused on energy projects.

Frank is a member of the boards of the Alliance To Save Energy, the American Council on an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (ESI).
