PSEG's Ralph Izzo to explore at NJIT the impacts of climate change, more
Date:1/26/2009

Ralph Izzo believes that our society is steering a very unsustainable course when it comes to energy and he speaks with authority. An engineer and researcher, Izzo is chairman, president and chief executive officer of Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated (PSEG).

In the first Technology and Society Forum presentation at NJIT for spring 2009, Izzo will explore how the impacts of climate change and an uncertain economy make it imperative to redefine our complex relationship with energy. Revolutionizing the nation's energy infrastructure can be the preeminent public-works project of our time, with cities being prime locations for pioneering advances in sustainability and the creation of a thriving green economy.

The lecture is free and open to the public and takes place Jan. 28, 2009 in the NJIT Campus Center Ballroom, from 3 - 4:30 p.m. Parking will be available in the NJIT Parking Garage, 154 Summit Street. For more information, please visit: http://tsf.njit.edu. Presentations have been made possible thanks to support from AT&T and Hewlett Packard.

Izzo has bachelor's and master's degrees in mechanical engineering and a doctorate in applied physics all from Columbia University. His career began as a research scientist at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. He has published or presented more than 35 papers on magnetohydrodynamic modeling.

A leader in the public-policy arena as well as the utility industry, Izzo's experience includes service as an American Physical Society Congressional Science Fellow, in the office of U.S. Senator Bill Bradley. He also served as a senior policy advisor to New Jersey Governor Thomas H. Kean, specializing in energy, science and technology.

Chairman of the board for the Center for Energy Workforce Development, Izzo serves on the boards of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, the American Gas Association, the New Jersey Utilities Association, the Edison Electric Institute and the Nuclear Energy Institute. In addition, he is a member of the Council on Competitiveness Energy Security; Innovation and Sustainability Initiative Steering Committee; and the Business Roundtable.
