CalMTA Advisory Board member application closed
CalMTA accepted applications for the seats of the Market Transformation Advisory Board (MTAB) members whose one-year term ends in April. The application form was publicly available February 6 – 20, 2024.
The available seats were for two-year terms in the categories of Ratepayer Advocacy, Environmental Advocacy, and Evaluation Professional. Applications will be scored by a team and recommendations will be approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Energy Division staff. Successful candidates will start their terms after the next MTAB meeting on April 25, 2024.
While applications were open to the public, CalMTA anticipates that current members for these seats would reapply to continue serving on the board.
The role of MTAB members
The MTAB is critical to CalMTA’s operations, bringing their expertise and perspectives to this important and high-profile program to establish a market transformation portfolio for California. In their role, they provide unbiased, non-binding recommendations to CalMTA and the CPUC during the design and implementation of market transformation initiatives (MTIs). This includes reviewing market transformation idea selection and prioritization, providing feedback on research plans (Advancement Plans), and tracking MTI activities and progress.
MTAB members meet either in-person or virtually at least quarterly for 6-8 hours including review of materials. Our MTAB meetings are open to the public and provide opportunities for public comment.
MTAB representatives are intended to have diverse backgrounds and possess the following general characteristics:
- A long-term background in California and national energy efficiency
- A broad-based interest in outcomes of California and national energy efficiency proceeding,
- A solid understanding of market transformation principles
- Experience working constructively on advisory (or similar) committees
MTAB members are required to comply with the MTAB charter and conflict of interest policies. Travel within the state of California is required for meetings. Members will receive a stipend and expense reimbursement.
