The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has hired Evelyn Butler to run the trade association’s codes and standards work.
Butler comes to SEIA after serving as business development director of solar, energy and power technologies for UL, a company where she held several leadership roles for more than 25 years. There, she managed a team that worked with senior internal and external executives to successfully develop business strategies for the energy sector.
As SEIA explains, standards define the rules under which solar products enter the market, and codes govern the way systems are designed and installed.
“Evelyn’s business acumen and vast experience leading renewable divisions will be a great addition to the SEIA team,” says Rhone Resch, SEIA president and CEO. “We are really excited to have a leader of Evelyn’s caliber delivering a strong message for the solar industry on its commitment to codes and standards setting.”
Butler will be leading both SEIA’s codes and standards and environment, health and safety initiatives.
