Women in Conservation: Mary Powell and Elizabeth Wilson
Join us at Dartmouth College's Silsby Hall (Room 028) for a conversation between Mary Powell and Elizabeth Wilson.
Ms. Powell is nationally recognized as an energy visionary, positioning Green Mountain Power (GMP) as a leading energy transformation company since being named chief executive ten years ago. She has implemented a strategic and comprehensive restructuring of the Vermont company and achieved a widespread cultural transformation and service quality improvement. Under Ms. Powell’s leadership, GMP became the first utility in the world to become a B Corp, displaying a commitment to use energy as a force for good. GMP was named one of the top 10 energy companies in the world by Fast Company magazine in 2017.
Dr. Wilson is a professor in Dartmouth’s Environmental Studies Department and the inaugural director of the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society. She studies how energy systems are changing in the face of new technologies and new societal pressures, with an emphasis on how institutions support and thwart energy system transitions and on the interplays between technology innovation, policy creation, and institutional decision making. Her recent books include Energy Law and Policy and Smart Grid (R)evolution: Electric Power Struggles.
This event is co-sponsored by the Montshire Museum of Science, Upper Valley Sierra Club Group, New Hampshire and Vermont Sierra Clubs,Student Conservation Association (SCA), Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society at Dartmouth College, and New England Women in Energy and The Environment (NEWIEE).
