The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization that consists of governmental agencies that are engaged in the regulation of utilities and carriers in the U.S., has appointed Marsha Smith, NARUC's first vice president, as co-chair of the National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency Leadership Group.

The National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency is a collaborative effort led by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) to address the nation's growing demand for energy through efficiency measures. The group consists of more than 50 leading electric and gas utilities, state utility commissioners, state air and energy agencies, energy service providers, energy consumers and other stakeholders.

Smith, of the Idaho Public Utilities Commission, will be taking over the position that was vacated by Diane Munns, NARUC's former president, who joined the private sector earlier this year. Jim Rogers, Duke Energy's president and chief executive officer, is the group's other co-chair.
