Derek DiGiacomo, the SCTE/ISBE's senior director of Energy Management Programs and Business Continuity and lead for the Energy 2020 program, has been named to the Environmental + Energy 100 by Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today.
DiGiacomo, who has spearheaded the SCTE/ISBE's efforts to help reduce cable industry energy costs and consumption and increase green-sourced energy, was among those recognized at ELEMCON, the Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Conference in Denver. The Environment and Energy Leader 100 (E + E 100) annually recognizes leaders in the environmental and energy management space. Honorees are nominated by peers and selected based on their impact on the industry or the company in which they work.
"From the very beginnings of our energy management efforts, Derek's work has contributed immeasurably to our significant achievements on behalf of the industry," said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of the SCTE/ISBE. "His well-deserved recognition within Environment Leader and Energy Manager Today's elite group of change agents demonstrates that the progress we're making in cable is being noticed by the industry at large."
"I'm grateful for this honor, but let's not forget that Energy 2020 is a team effort that's been embraced by the entire industry," said DiGiacomo. "Much of the credit for this award goes to the commitment of the Energy 2020 program leadership, as well as the continued hard work and dedication of the SCTE Standards Energy Management Subcommittee members who are producing the tools to help us reach our goals."
