Reston, Va. – The Energy Systems Integration Group (ESIG) announced that Bethany Frew, an engineer in the Strategic Energy Analysis Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), was recently elected to the group’s board of directors. Frew was elected during the group’s annual membership meeting at its 2019 Spring Technical Workshop in Albuquerque, N.M.
Frew has spent nearly 10 years building and using computational models to analyze the power system, both as a graduate student and as a researcher at NREL. In her current role, she is engaged in a variety of power system modeling activities. She joined NREL as a postdoctoral researcher in 2014 upon completion of her Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Stanford University. She also holds a M.S. from the same program and a B.S. in Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering from The Ohio State University.
“Bethany is an outstanding addition to our board of directors and one of the emerging generations of bright minds in our industry,” said Mark Ahlstrom, ESIG Board President. “Her knowledge, experience and perspective will be vital as we position ESIG for continued success and growth in charting the future of energy systems integration and operations.”
Members of the board of directors serve as industry ambassadors for ESIG and collectively oversee the association’s operations and strategic growth plan.
