A huge congrats, Joe! This is a monumental feat that shows the hard work you've been undertaking in leading on open energy system science in the US and abroad is being recognized at the highest levels. I wish you all the best in your new role at which I'm sure you will exceed all expectations.

This is amazing.

I had the brief pleasure of meeting Joe (and sharing a car ride with him) at the openmod session at NREL in September 2019 (what seems like forever ago).

What a great person with a passion for open energy modelling and data.

All the best, Joe!

Hi Tom, Matt, and Jarrad,

Thanks for your kind words. I continue to learn and benefit tremendously from the openmod community. If confirmed by the Senate, I plan to take those lessons with me to the Energy Information Administration.
