ERI Expands Its Board with Pfannenstiel
Energy Recovery, Inc., an ultra-high-efficiency energy recovery products and technology company working in desalination, has added Jackalyne Pfannenstiel, former chair of the California Energy Commission, to its board of directors.
Pfannenstiel, who served a five-year term on the commission, focused on climate change, energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy, and land use. She also was the presiding commissioner for the 2007 Integrated Energy Policy Report, which documented recommendations on executive and legislative actions governing how the energy sector will meet California's carbon reduction goals.
Prior to her work with the commission, Pfannenstiel was vice president of Strategic Initiatives for Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and PG&E Corporation in San Francisco.
GG Pique, ERI president and chief executive officer, stated, "Jackie's work and advocacy in energy efficiency at the state level is extremely valuable to us, and we're delighted she's joined. Bringing engineering sciences and energy efficiency experts to our board will help us move in the right direction to increase awareness of the crucial interdependence between water and energy, as well as the global fresh water scarcity now starting to affect California."
