Press Release:

    As Chairman of the Energy Policy Council, Lt. Governor Robinson is pleased to announce the establishment of the Energy Innovation Committee. This committee will serve the state and work to inform the Energy Policy Council about new, and emerging energy technology.

    The Energy Innovation Committee will be chaired by Dr. John Hardin and will include Jenny Kelvington and Brian LiVecchi. We are also thankful for DEQ and the State Energy Office for providing staff support for this new subcommittee.

    Lt. Governor Robinson states, "With the establishment of this new committee we can work to find energy solutions for our state. We have seen how detrimental it can be when we wait for a disaster to happen and not know how to respond when it comes to our energy needs. This committee will serve to ensure that North Carolina will have reliable, and affordable energy that will secure our future."

    Lt. Governor Robinson's Chairman Designee Brian LiVecchi states, "In a time of energy uncertainty and transition throughout the world, the Energy Innovation Committee will tap into North Carolina's proven research and hi-tech resources to identify and develop new and emerging energy technology that will keep North Carolina on the cutting edge and allow us to be a leading example for the nation in the development of safe, reliable, sustainable energy."

    Jenny Kelvington states, "I'm honored to be a part of the Energy Innovation Committee. Today's ideas and emerging technologies must be cultivated to inform the policy of tomorrow - this committee will be at the forefront of that work."
