She is also a steering committee member for the California Sustainability Alliance.

"Nancy is committed to California's energy future," says Yakout Mansour, California ISO's president and chief executive officer. "She is equally dedicated to meeting the new environmental challenges that lie ahead, blending climate change policies with the operation of the power grid."
