The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) on behalf of the Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) is currently seeking qualified individuals for the vacant EEAC Councilor seat representing Massachusetts Businesses and Large Commercial and Industrial End Users. Candidates should work in either a professional or voluntary capacity with large commercial or industrial customers and have demonstrated familiarity with the energy needs of this sector. Additionally, the EEAC is actively seeking to foster diversity within the Council.
The EEAC was established in 2008 by the Green Communities Act in order to oversee the development and implementation of the Massachusetts Program Administrator’s Three-Year Energy Efficiency Plans. Information on the Council can be found on the EEAC website.
Councilors should expect to attend one three-hour EEAC meeting each month typically held in Boston, though currently held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Councilors should also have availability to review meeting materials prior to each monthly meeting. Lastly, during the Three-Year Planning process, Councilors may be asked attend additional meetings as needed. The planning process for the 2022-2024 Three-Year Plan begins this Fall.
Individuals interested in the Business and Large Commercial and Industrial End Users Council seat are asked to email MA-EEAC@mass.gov and include contact information. DOER will follow-up with those interested in learning more about this position. Once a potential candidate has been identified, DOER will recommend the individual to the Department of Public Utilities for appointment to the EEAC.
