Energy Committee

MISSION & GOALS

The mission of the energy committee is to engage the European and U.S. energy community and generate awareness about the programs, thought-leadership and resources the EACCNY and its members have to offer to companies and organizations in the Energy, sustainable Infrastructure and Renewables sector.

The international make-up of the EACC’s energy committee offers us direct access to the key players in the European market and throughout the United States, and with that a unique position among our peers.

The committee will assist the EACC in providing its members and the larger EACC audience with timely & relevant information and resources on matters affecting the energy industry in Europe and the U.S.

Its main goals are to:

  • Contribute to and participate in targeted business and networking activities to engage the energy community, in alignment with the EACC’s strategic priorities
  • Identify relevant & timely issues affecting the energy markets in the U.S and the EU and develop informative programs and thought-leadership articles to educate the EACC membership and the energy committees’ larger audience
  • Inform European executives about relevant energy issues in the United States and respectively U.S executives about the EU market as well as how they affect transatlantic business transactions

COMMITTEE RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Help raise the profile and visibility of the EACC, its members and their thought-leadership on business, legal and regulatory matters locally, nationally and internationally within the energy industry and its larger constituency
  • Participate in  annual committee leaders’ meetings and EACCNY’s strategic meeting
  • Identify prospective members within the target audience of the committee and engage them with the goal to get involved and become part of the EACC
  • Engage in a regular discourse with the EACC Staff and program committee to help identify relevant topics and changes in the energy industry that could affect cross-border transactions

ENERGY COMMITTEE MEMBERS

The composition of the energy committee should be diverse in terms of industry sectors and verticals as well as geographies. It should be representative of the local community yet in-tune with the transatlantic and pan-european credentials of the EACC membership and our larger audience. It will represent the traditional and the renewable energy sectors.
