Strategic Advisory Committee (SAC)


RPSEA established the Strategic Advisory Committee (SAC) to provide strategic direction, advice on the shape of the research portfolio, long-range planning recommendations, and metrics determination to the BOD and to the president.  The SAC is comprised of a group of industry leaders in the energy field, including both RPSEA members and non-members. The SAC provides guidance regarding the process used to develop the RPSEA DAP, the proposed R&D portfolio, and the metrics to be used to track progress toward Program goals.
