CCST Council Member
Rob Oglesby

Executive Director (retired), California Energy Commission

Recently retired from the California Energy Commission, Oglesby formerly served under four governors as Legislative Director at the California Air Resources Board, where his tenure saw the inception of the Low and Zero Emission Vehicle standards, adoption of reformulated gasoline and diesel fuel requirements, and the Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32).

Rob Oglesby served as Executive Director of the California Energy Commission from 2011 to 2017. The Commission is the state's primary energy policy and planning agency. The Commission also licenses large power plants, sets appliance and building efficiency standards and administers about $750 million annually funding energy efficiency, energy research and development, and alternative fuels and vehicles.

Rob began his career under the first Brown Administration Department of Economic and Business Development, and worked in the private sector for ten years on issues related to public finance, the environmental and economic development.

Immediately prior to joining the Energy Commission, Rob held several positions at the California Air Resources Board (ARB) where he served four Governors as an appointee and participated at a high level in virtually all major issues affecting air pollution and global warming over the past two decades. Rob's tenure at the ARB included the inception of the Low and Zero Emission Vehicle standards, adoption of reformulated gasoline and diesel fuel requirements, and development and implementation of the Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32).

He was appointed to the Council in 2018.
