About the Double Bottom Line series: At Opower, pursuing a double bottom line — measuring ourselves by our environmental performance in addition to our financial performance — is a major part of our company DNA. In this series, we’ll be highlighting Oployees across the company who share what working at a double-bottom-line company means for their everyday work — and what it means to them personally.
Ken Haig is a Director of Regulatory Affairs in Opower’s Tokyo office. When he joined Opower last month, he walked in the door with more than a decade of experience researching Japan’s political system. Now he’s helping shape that system as Japan reimagines its electrical grid and continues to implement historic reforms.
What do you do at Opower?
I am part of a small but strong (and growing) Regulatory Affairs team in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. My focus is on working with internal and external stakeholders to help set the stage for important progress in the Japanese utility industry across several areas, including customer engagement, smart grid analytics, and energy management.
