Power Suits: The "Fierce"-est Women in Energy


By Barbara Vergetis Lundin

In the male dominated energy industry, few women stand out from the pack. Throughout the utility industry, that dynamic is shifting. The female leaders among men are visionaries and trailblazers in their own right having, in many instances, fought their way to the top or been appointed to positions that traditionally have only seated males.

There are only five females that hold the top seat (that of CEO) at investor owned utilities across the United States. And many of them have set an industry first, holding the title of the utility's "First Female CEO."

FierceEnergy's list of the "Fierce"-est Women in Energy pays tribute to those female executives who are guiding the growth of the energy industry via their passion, drive, dedication, energy, leadership, knowledge and experience.
