The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) recently announced winners of its 14th annual Inspiring Efficiency Awards, which honor leaders who have delivered groundbreaking advancements in energy efficiency. Jon Williams, AEP Ohio’s director of Distribution Technology & Innovation, was given the 2018 Chairman’s Award for his exemplary industry leadership and support of MEEA throughout the organization’s history.

Williams oversees energy efficiency and demand-response projects for AEP Ohio, including the design, development and implementation of the company’s energy efficiency and peak demand-reduction programs. He also is responsible for developing new “smart” distribution-related technologies, projects and opportunities such as renewables, electric vehicles/charging, batteries and smart lighting.

“AEP Ohio and our customers have benefitted for many years from Jon’s drive and leadership to grow energy efficiency programs in Ohio,” said Marc Reitter, AEP Ohio vice president of Regulatory & Finance. “Under his direction, our programs have grown exponentially and our customers have saved millions of dollars from reduced energy usage. We are thrilled that he’s being honored with this year’s MEEA Chairman’s Award.”

Williams has more than 36 years of experience working with all classes of customers on energy-related issues, including energy efficiency, demand response, power quality, construction, rates and contracts. He served on MEEA’s board of directors for six years and supported the organization as a board officer for five years.

MEEA is a collaborative network advancing energy efficiency for sustainable economic development and environmental stewardship across its 13 Midwestern states. The organization recognized winners on February 8 during an awards ceremony as part of the Midwest Energy Solutions Conference in Chicago.
