Advisory Board

The EEMI Advisory Board consists of noted academicians, industry leaders and ex-officials from government. Members have a strong interest in energy and/or environmental policy, science or technology and have expressed a willingness to help direct the efforts of EEMI in line with its vision. Semi-annually, Institute directors update the board members on EEMI activities and convene them twice yearly to discuss progress and to solicit and receive advice for advancing the EEMI mission.
