The New York State Smart Grid Consortium (NYSSGC), a public-private partnership devoted to statewide implementation of the smart grid, has named James T. Gallagher its new executive director.

Gallagher, who has served as a member representative to the NYSSGC for two years, will replace former executive director David Manning. Gallagher most recently served as senior manager for strategic planning at the New York Independent System Operator.

“I am very excited to elevate my role in this vital organization to help lead our collaborative effort to implement grid modernization throughout New York,” says Gallagher. “I am truly impressed with the progress to date, and I look forward to working with our public- and private-sector members to advance the NYSSGC’s efforts and secure New York’s energy future.”
