WCEE’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce that WCEE’s 2020 Woman of the Year and 2020 Champion have been selected! Both awardees are strong supporters of WCEE, past participants in WCEE’s programming, and have significant energy leadership experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors:

 

Miranda Ballentine
As CEO of the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), an alliance of large energy buyers, renewable energy developers, service providers, and NGO partners, Miranda Ballentine leads the organization to leverage the scale of markets to accelerate a clean, secure, prosperous, low carbon energy system.

Before leading REBA, Ms. Ballentine was appointed by President Obama to be Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Installations, Environment, and Energy), where she was an integral member of the Air Force’s top executive team, alongside the Secretary of the Air Force and the Air Force’s 4-star Generals.

Prior to the Air Force, Ms. Ballentine served as Director of Sustainability for Global Renewable Energy & Sustainable Facilities at Walmart Stores, Inc., where she led a team to develop strategies toward Walmart’s goal to be supplied by 100% renewable energy, with over $1 billion in potential annual energy savings.


Vicky Bailey
With over thirty years of high level, national and international, corporate executive and governmental expertise in energy and regulated industries, Vicky Bailey started her career as a Commissioner at the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, and then at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, before becoming President/CEO, PSI Energy, Inc. From 2001-2004, Ms. Bailey was appointed by President Bush as the first DOE Assistant Secretary for both International Affairs and Domestic Policy.

Presently, as founder of Anderson Stratton International LLC management advisory services, her clients past and present include E.ON, Georgia Power, Edison Electric Institute, Midcontinent Independent System Operator, ERCB of Alberta, Direct Energy (subsidiary of Centrica, UK), and the Nuclear Matters Leadership Council. In 2013, Ms. Bailey was the first female to be elected Chairman of the Board of the United States Energy Association (USEA), a position she held until 2019.


Ms. Ballentine and Ms. Bailey will be honored at WCEE’s annual gala dinner event on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 in Washington DC. We hope you will join us!
