Andrew McAllister was appointed to the California Energy Commission by Gov. Edmund G. Brown in May 2012, and reappointed in January 2017. Commissioner McAllister has been working on clean energy deployment and policy for his entire 25-year career: beginning in the early 1990s in project engineering and development, evolving into program design and implementation, then moving into the policy arena. He has worked across the world to develop renewable energy generation, energy efficiency investments, and energy management systems, with counterparts ranging from tiny remote communities to the largest of utilities. He administered two of California’s signature renewable energy programs (California Solar Initiative, Self-Generation Incentive Program), developed and operated energy efficiency programs for utilities, and performed a broad range of policy-related research for California and the U.S. Federal government. He currently serves on the board of directors of the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and the Alliance to Save Energy. Commissioner McAllister’s deep grounding in technology, policy and marketplace provides him with uncommon insight on the accelerating changes taking place in the electric power sector.
