Chairman Weisenmiller Recognized for Leadership in Government
California Energy Commission Chair Robert B. Weisenmiller was named a 2015 Clean Air Award winner from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for his leadership in government.
SCAQMD hosted the 27th Annual Clean Air Awards on October 2 in Los Angeles. The awards honor individuals and businesses, public agencies and others who are making significant contributions to cleaner air in the Southland.
Weisenmiller, who has more than 30 years of public- and private-sector experience in electricity and gas markets and regulatory policy making, received the S. Roy Wilson Memorial Award for Leadership in Government.
Under his leadership, the Energy Commission has leveraged opportunities to accelerate energy efficiency and renewable energy development and to minimize adverse localized impacts. When addressing complex issues related to grid reliability and modernization, Weisenmiller has emphasized enhanced collaboration with stakeholders, including air districts and communities. The Energy Commission has also directed significant co-funding toward advanced-technology development and deployment to improve the pace of bringing clean-energy infrastructure to the general marketplace.
Weisenmiller, who was unable to attend the award ceremony, provided taped thank you remarks.
