     Have you heard the exciting news? Charlotte is growing into the nation's new Energy hub.

    Jeff Merrifield, Senior Vice President of Shaw Power Group, will be our featured speaker for during our SMPS Energy Summit. Mr. Merrifield is a member of the Power Group’s executive team, he directs Shaw’s nuclear and plant services business development activities, as well as external relations, government relations, marketing communications and community relations.

    Mr. Merrifield served two terms (1998 to 2007) as a U.S. Senate-confirmed commissioner of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Appointed by President Clinton and reappointed by President Bush, Mr. Merrifield served as one of five individuals overseeing this independent commission that regulates the safety and security of the 104 operating nuclear power plants in the U.S.

    During his tenure, Mr. Merrifield led a number of high-level U.S. government delegations that included meetings in 30 of the 31 countries that operate nuclear power plants, including Japan, and visits to more than half of the world’s 440 operating nuclear units.

    He also served as acting NRC chairman during the August 2003 blackout when nine nuclear reactors underwent emergency shutdowns, as well as during an emergency situation that led to the first evacuation of an NRC-licensed site since Three Mile Island.
