WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) is proud to announce that Sharon Allan, our chief strategy officer, has been appointed to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Electricity Advisory Committee, effective July 1, 2020.

I am excited to join this impressive team for the work ahead.”
