Obama names Zoi to renewable energy post at DOE

President Barack Obama intends to nominate Cathy Zoi to be the Energy Department's assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy, the White House said on Friday.


Zoi has a long career in promoting renewable energy and fighting climate change.


In January 2007, she became the CEO at the Alliance for Climate Protection, which was established by former Vice President Al Gore. The organization's goal was to persuade Americans about the urgency and solutions of global warming.


Before that Zoi served as group executive director at the Bayard Group, which was recently renamed Landis+Gyr Holdings. The firm is a world leader in energy measurement technologies and has operations in 30 countries.


She was also a manager at the Environmental Protection Agency where she pioneered the Energy Star Program.
