Burlington, Mass., April 26, 2018 – Haley & Aldrich, an engineering and environmental consulting firm, announced today that Lisa JN Bradley, Ph.D., DABT, Principal in Toxicology, was recently appointed to a third term on the National Coal Council (NCC). Dr. Bradley currently serves as the Chair of the NCC’s Communications Committee and is a member of the Executive Committee. Established in 1984, the primary role of the NCC is to provide advice and recommendations to the Secretary of Energy on policies relating to coal and the coal industry.

“I am appointing you to represent the viewpoints of companies that provide support services to industry sectors that use byproducts from coal-fired power plants,” Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said in his offer letter. “In the coming months, the work of the Council will be extremely important to the Nation.”

"The NCC plays an important part in shaping our national energy policy by developing a deep understanding of the technological, regulatory, economic, and social impact of issues related to coal production and use, as part of our nation’s balanced energy policy" said Colin Sweeney, Haley & Aldrich’s Electric, Gas & Energy Market Segment Leader. "Lisa’s contributions and continued role on the NCC’s Executive Committee are important for the formation of national coal policy."

As a member of the NCC, Dr. Bradley will continue to provide risk assessment and toxicology expertise to inform NCC’s reports for Secretary Perry. She has served on the NCC since 2014.

Dr. Bradley holds a Ph.D. in toxicology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has 25 years of experience in risk assessment and toxicology. She is certified by the American Board of Toxicology and has conducted risk assessments for coal ash management areas, environmental communications for proposed landfills, and has worked with clients to evaluate and comment on state groundwater standards for coal ash related constituents. She has been active with the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA) and is serving her third two-year term as Secretary/Treasurer. Her achievements include recognition as one of the top women in mining by the non-profit organization, Women in Mining UK, in its 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining 2016 report.  

The NCC’s Communications Committee is responsible for increasing public awareness of the existence, goals and work of the NCC, for more widely disseminating NCC’s reports and studies, and for enhancing the visibility and media coverage of NCC meetings.
