USEA Congratulates Board of Directors Chair Bailey on Appointment to Inaugural Department of Energy Board

U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm announced on Thursday the appointment of USEA Board of Directors Chair, Vicky Bailey, to the inaugural board of the Foundation for Energy Security and Innovation (FESI).

“We at USEA are incredibly proud of Vicky’s appointment to this critical board that will help ensure energy security and prosperity,” USEA President and CEO Mark Menezes said. “I look forward to seeing what she and the rest of the board will do.”

The Foundation for Energy Security and Innovation (FESI), created by the 2022 CHIPS and Science Act, is an independent non-profit that partners with the Department of Energy (DOE). FESI fuels America's progress by accelerating the development and commercialization of clean energy solutions. Through private sector and philanthropic partnerships, they'll provide DOE with extra resources to support research and innovation that strengthens US energy security and environmental goals. This aligns perfectly with the Biden-Harris Administration's clean energy ambitions.

“Joining FESI really comes at a critical point from a policy perspective regarding investment in technology and innovation as we strive to have a transition that is affordable, clean, and secure,” USEA Board of Directors Chair Vicky Bailey said. “My hope for FESI is that we are able to accelerate the commercialization of clean energy technologies that are needed to meet our climate goals and maintain energy security. This is in line with USEA’s mission to promote energy development by expanding access to safe, affordable, sustainable, and environmentally acceptable energy for all in partnership with the U.S. Government.”
