HOUSTON – December 9, 2021 – The Energy Professionals Association (TEPA) announced the creation of its Sustainability Committee to address the growing demand for renewable energy solutions. The new committee includes a diverse group of TEPA members. Retail energy brokers, energy suppliers, and renewable energy providers will offer diverse expertise on sustainable energy solutions.
Matt Stasium, Director of Strategic Relationships at Atlas Retail Energy stated, “I am extremely excited and honored to join my fellow industry leaders as a member of the recently formed TEPA Sustainability Committee. Our industry is on the forefront of the energy transition globally and it is our job to lead the way for this transition. This committee and the members of TEPA look to foster innovation, investment, and knowledge through extensive review and development of ideas. Sustainable solutions are no longer a futuristic dream or something only large organizations can obtain. They are now part of the day-to-day energy strategy for all companies and this committee will help to ensure momentum into the future. Generational change is upon us and with strategic focus like this, it won’t take a generation to make that change.”
“One of the key points of conversation during this year’s national TEPA conference is the transition of retail energy,” said Shannon McGriff, TEPA Executive Director. “Market participants, like our TEPA brokers and retailers who operate inside of competitive energy markets, are uniquely positioned to accelerate the development and adoption of carbon neutral programs for the business, government and private sector. TEPA’s new Sustainability Committee is the perfect platform to both facilitate dialogue about sustainability and develop realistic solutions that our members can help implement now.”
The national TEPA board has appointed Steve Campbell as the Sustainability Committee Chair. Campbell currently serves as the President of Energy Solutions at Mantis Innovation, a TEPA member company. In his role at Mantis Innovation, he is responsible for the overall growth of this business division, focusing on providing smart, sustainable energy solutions. Prior to that role, he served as Chief Financial Officer and President of Patriot Energy Group. Campbell has held several senior level roles in both public and private companies with responsibilities in finance, operations, and facilities management.
“For many years, electricity and natural gas were widely considered commodity products, but that conversation is evolving to encompass sustainable building performance,” said Campbell. “Policy makers and companies are answering the urgent demand to make more meaningful choices in how we power our businesses. As a result, we’re seeing an accelerated movement in making renewable energy sources, products and technology accessible to everyone. Our goal as a Sustainability Committee is to foster more conversations and education of our TEPA members on providing sustainable solutions and renewable energy.”
