The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has announced that Kimberly S. Greene, president and CEO of Southern Company Services, will chair its Board of Directors effective as of April 11.

Greene had previously served a term as vice chair for the energy research group. HydroWorld.com reported in February that Greene had joined Southern (NYSE: SO) after several years with the Tennessee Valley Authority, where she served as chief financial officer, executive vice president of financial services and chief risk officer.

Greene will be joined by Denis P. O'Brien, senior executive vice president of Exelon and CEO of Exelon Utilities, as vice chair, in addition to board members Bernard Salha CEO of Research and Development at Electricite de France; Livio Vido, chairman of Enel Energia e Ricerca at Enel of Italy; Duane D. Highly, president and CEO of Arkansas Electric Cooperative; Terry Boston, president and CEO of PJM; and James Lash, president of FirstEnergy Generation -- all of whom will serve four-year terms.

TXU Energy chairman and CEO Jim Burke and Duke Energy executive Keith Trent were each elected to one-year interim terms, while Anita J. Decker, chief operating officer of Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), will be one of two federal public power representatives on the board.

EPRI is an independent, non-profit organization focused on research and development relating to the generation, delivery and use of electricity. The group said its members represent approximately 90% of all electricity generated and delivered in the United States, and international participation extends to more than 30 countries.
