Former NRC Chair Shirley Jackson Will Advise Next President

Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, right, was the Chairwoman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) during the Clinton Administration. Dr. Jackson announced a new energy plan for the next U.S. president and Congress at a National Press Club press conference this week. The strategy, known as the 100-Day Energy Action Plan, was developed by The Council on Competitiveness, a nonpartisan group of corporate, labor and university leaders. Jackson is vice chairwoman of the organization and co-chair of its Energy Security, Innovation and Sustainability Initiative.

Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson is currently president of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is a theoretical physicist and has been speaking about energy issues on a regular basis around the world and also sits on the boards of directors of Marathon Oil Corp. and Public Service Enterprise Group Inc., a large utility and power plant owner based in New Jersey that is better known as PSEG.
