Under Forties 2022
Lori Burkhart is Editor-in-Chief of Public Utilities Fortnightly.
This year for the Fortnightly Under Forties feature, the PUF team wanted to share even more about our impressive nominees. As usual, you can check out profiles of all our nominees in this issue.
But this time, we gave our Under Forties the chance to tell us a little about themselves. We asked each of them three questions, and they delivered.
In their own words, you can read what some of them find most rewarding, which people helped on their road to success, and what advice they have for the next generation of innovators. While we couldn't fit everyone's fantastic responses into the article, here are some highlights from our respondents across the industry.
What's most rewarding about your career to date?
The aspects of their careers that our nominees found rewarding may be familiar to many industry veterans. Issues such as innovative sustainability efforts and dedicated contributions to a cleaner, more energy efficient future. Or the sense of community, both among their colleagues and in their locale. Perhaps it's making a difference in their communities that motivates many in the industry.
"The most rewarding part of my career is the impact my work has on the greater St. Louis community," said Ameren Missouri's Tyler Clarke. "From exciting new developments to some of the less predictable times, like when storms hit, and I am one of the first responders the community counts on to get the lights back on."
