The SCTE/ISBE Energy 2020 program is getting some high-powered direction. Tony Werner, president of technology and product for Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), and Balan Nair, executive vice president and CTO of Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) will co-chair the program.

Werner and Nair will work together with Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE/ISBE, as members of the steering committee for the program, which is designed to promote reductions in energy cost and consumption for the industry. Mark Hess, senior vice president of business and industry affairs for Comcast, will serve as program technical advisor.

Simpson Cumba, vice president of data center services for Comcast, and Sam Khola, director of sustainability for Liberty Global, will serve as chair and vice-chair, respectively, of the Energy Management Subcommittee (EMS) within the SCTE/ISBE Standards Program. The subcommittee also includes representatives from Alpha Technologies, ARRIS, Cisco, CommScope, CableLabs, Hitachi Consulting, Metrocast, and other operators and technology partners.

"One of the most important drivers of Energy 2020's success has been the willingness of the MSO community to commit the time of some of their most talented executives to the program," said Dzuban. "I'm particularly grateful for the way leading technology executives - including Tony Werner, Balan Nair and others - have pledged their wholehearted support for the program."
