Paula R. Glover, President and CEO of American Association of Blacks in Energy, will open the virtual conference.

The American Association of Blacks in Energy is a national energy trade association that represents all sectors of the energy industry. Paula leads a 2000-member association with 40 chapters nationwide. The association’s focus is to represent the voice for African Americans and other minorities on energy policy, regulations, and environmental issues.

Paula directs the association’s strategic plan, business development and policy positions. She represents the organization before energy industry executives and national and state policy makers. She is an industry thought leader for issues around diversity and inclusion. Her work on international energy issues underscores the importance of energy to improve the quality of life for people throughout the African Continent.

The association under Paula’s leadership has partnered with the US Department of Energy on its Minorities in Energy initiative as well as business development programming for minority entrepreneurs. She has also testified before Congress about the impact of policies on underserved communities.

Paula has more than 25 years of experience in the energy industry, including 15 years in both electric and natural gas distribution companies where she has worked in government affairs, regulatory affairs and economic development. In March 2014 Paula was appointed to the National Petroleum Council by U.S. Secretary of Energy, Dr. Ernest Moniz. She continues to serve on the Council having been reappointed by Secretary Perry in 2016 and Secretary Brouillette in 2020.

The summit agenda will continue with a featured plenary session where regional experts will debate “Re-Envisioning  the Grid for Deep Decarbonization” followed by three breakout tracks.

Our session picks:

Track A: Zero Net Energy: Scaling Solutions, featuring Haley Gardner, International Living Future Institute, and Lawrence Tsang, Convergent Energy + Power. The market potential is exciting.

Track B: The Equity Imperative: Advancing Environmental Justice in the Clean Energy Economy. This issue is no longer on the fringes.

Track C: Energy Storage: Connecting Renewable Supply and Resilient Demand.
