The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority has appointed a north country woman to its Board of Directors.
The authority announced Monday that Kate Fish, executive director of the Adirondack North Country Association, will serve six years on the NYSERDA board, and her new role coincides with the appointment of Alicia Barton as NYSERDA’s president and chief executive officer.
“It is a huge honor to have been selected to join the board of NYSERDA, and testament to the work of ANCA’s board and staff on deepening our knowledge and understanding of the approaches that work in the northern part of the state to move the clean energy economy forward,” Ms. Fish said in a statement. “We have built our clean energy program recognizing that clean energy adoption drives a resilient and localized energy economy and results in high quality jobs, cost savings for communities and a cleaner environment.”
