The Illinois Science and Energy Innovation Foundation (ISEIF), a nonprofit organization created by the Illinois Energy Infrastructure Modernization Act to administer a smart grid consumer education fund, has named Clare Butterfield program director.

The ISEIF says Butterfield will focus on grant-making strategies that will help Illinois consumers benefit from smart metering technology that will be installed in millions of homes.

Prior to joining the ISEIF, Butterfield founded and served as executive director of Faith in Place, an organization created to rally the faith community around environmental and energy issues.

The ISEIF will administer its first grant cycle this year, with a biannual call for proposals starting in 2014.
