DOE announces Secretary of Energy Advisory Board

On Monday, the Department of Energy announced the 19 members of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board, which will advise Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz on issues in science, energy, nuclear security and environmental stewardship. The board, which is comprised of scientists, business executives, academics and former government officials, will meet at least quarterly.

The board will be co-chaired by John Deutch, a chemist at MIT and former Under Secretary of Energy, and Persis Drell, a physics professor at Stanford University and the former director of SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Members of the board will also serve on ad hoc committees alongside outside experts in order to advise the Secretary in specific areas.
