Martin Keller, formerly associate laboratory director for energy and environmental sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has joined the Alliance for Sustainable Energy as president and director of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
He will succeed Dan Arvizu, who will retire from the alliance after more than a decade in the service, on Nov. 30, 2015, NREL said Tuesday.
“I look forward to working with Martin hand-in-hand as strategic partners to deliver the technologies and solutions that will help create American leadership in the transition to a global clean energy economy,” said David Danielson, the Energy Department‘s assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
The alliance manages NREL for the department.
Keller had led the BioEnergy Science Center within ORNL’s Office of Science since 2006.
