Suzanne Bertin

Managing Director, TAEBA

As Managing Director, Suzanne Bertin leads TAEBA’s efforts to promote the advanced energy industry in the State of Texas. 
Immediately prior to joining TAEBA, Suzanne handled regulatory and government affairs in Texas and the Southeast for EnerNOC, a global leader in demand response and energy intelligence software.  Suzanne was also at Reliant (NRG) for more than a decade, where she worked on a wide range of wholesale and retail legislative and regulatory issues, from the inception of the competitive retail market in ERCOT and through its first eleven years of operation.  In these roles, Suzanne has had direct business and policy experience relating to numerous advanced energy technologies including energy efficiency, demand response, natural gas, solar, wind, electric vehicles, and smart grid. 
Suzanne worked in the Office of Policy Development at the Public Utility Commission of Texas during the late 1990s, when the ERCOT competitive retail market was established by Texas Senate Bill 7.  Suzanne co-led the team responsible for implementing the transition to competition, which encompassed more than 40 regulatory proceedings, many of which were highly complex and contentious.   
Suzanne also previously held electrical engineering positions at Austin Energy and at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.  
Suzanne holds a Master of Public Affairs degree from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin.  Suzanne also holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts (Managerial Studies), both from Rice University in Houston, Texas.  
Suzanne is a lifelong Texan and resides in Austin.
