Meyer Seligman, a Senate committee staff member, has been appointed as director for government relations at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) of the Department of Energy (DOE), effective July 26th.
She will be tasked to inform stakeholders about the laboratory's mission-related research initiatives, such as securing the future of the nation’s energy, NREL said Monday.
Seligman has worked as a staff member for the Senate Committee on Appropriations, Energy and Water Development Subcommittee for the past seven years. She was also a legislative director for Alan Nunnelee when he served as a representative of Mississippi's first congressional district.
“Meyer’s guidance on how we can engage our external stakeholders as the U.S. lays the foundations for both carbon-free electricity and a clean energy economy will be important to our success,” commented Martin Keller, director of NREL and president of lab operator Alliance for Sustainable Energy.
Seligman also brings experience as a 2017 graduate of the NREL Executive Energy Leadership Program.
