LANSING, Mich. (AP) (6/13/2019) - Brandy Brown has been named climate and energy adviser for the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy.
Department Director Liesl Clark announced the appointment Thursday. Clark said Brown will lead an office that will coordinate the state's response to climate change across departments and agencies.
It will make recommendations on taking steps to limit climate change and dealing with the effects of global warming that are already happening.
Brown previously worked for CLEAResult in East Lansing, where she formulated strategic objectives for electrification products such as electric vehicles, photovoltaic systems, battery storage and other emerging technologies.
She also developed CLEAResult's five-year strategic plan for advanced mobility, as well as residential- and commercial-utility-scale electric vehicle programs with a focus on low-to-middle-income customers.
