He was the first director of the US Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy and was later nominated for the Under Secretary of DoE. He joined Google in 2012 to help the company to advance in the US power sales market, which is worth more than $363 billion. Google is not the first to tap the possibilities of energy management.
