Ron Clark Appointed to the Board of Directors of QUEST

By Ron W. Clark

Ron Clark, partner at Aird & Berlis and a member of the firm’s Energy Group, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of QUEST, a national non-government organization that works to accelerate the adoption of efficient and integrated community-scale energy systems in Canada by informing, inspiring, and connecting decision-makers.

According to Ron, “the pathway to smart energy communities involves a cooperative effort among various stakeholders, including local authorities, utilities, service companies, consumers and others to innovate, make use of new technologies, and create new infrastructure. I am excited about helping to create and foster the relationships and expertise to make this happen. I look forward to working with my fellow directors and the QUEST management team to achieve these goals together.”

QUEST undertakes research, communicates best practices, convenes government, utility, private-sector and community leaders, and works directly with local authorities to implement on-the-ground solutions. QUEST grounds all its activities in the “Smart Energy Community”—a concept that encapsulates the ideal end state of the organization’s work.
