It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Clifford Green after a brief illness. He was marketing manager for security products at Highfield Manufacturing Company for many years, with vast experience in the identification and prevention of energy theft. Clifford was a board member of the International Utilities Revenue Protection Association (IURPA) and the Northeast Utilities Revenue Protection Association. He was also a good friend of Smart Energy International, and well-known throughout the US utility industry. His contribution will be missed by us all.
