DayStar Technologies, Inc. (DSTI) announces a new member to its Board of Directors. Bill Richardson, former U.S. secretary of energy, former governor of New Mexico and Nobel Prize nominee has joined the Board of Directors of DayStar Technologies.

"Bill Richardson made New Mexico the 'Clean Energy State' by requiring utilities to meet 20% of New Mexico's electrical demand from renewable sources, and established the Renewable Energy Transmission Authority to deliver New Mexico's world-class renewable resources to market,” said Lorne (Mark) Roseborough, president of DayStar. “This level of determination matches DayStar's commitment in the global renewable energy industry. Mr. Richardson's international respect and recognition in this industry will bring proven leadership in assisting DayStar's execution of its global business model."

Prior to being elected governor, Richardson served for 15 years in New Mexico representing the 3rd Congressional District. In 1997 and 1998, Richardson served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and he was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy under the Clinton Administration.

"Mr. Richardson, and his diplomatic skills honed through years of public and private service, will complement DayStar's local, national and international presence,” Daniel Germain, chairman of the nomination committee and founder of the Breakfast Clubs of Canada, stated. “One of the reasons he held the positions of governor, U.S. secretary of energy, and United Nations ambassador is because of his level of dedication to protecting the rights and improving the quality of life for people everywhere."

Since leaving his public service office, Richardson was named chairman of APCO Worldwide's executive advisory service Global Political Strategies (GPS) and special envoy for the Organization of American States (OAS), adding another platform for initiatives within peace and reconciliation in the Western hemisphere.

In addition, Richardson serves as senior fellow for Latin America at Rice University's James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy, and has joined several non-profit and for-profit boards, including Abengoa's International Advisory Board, the fifth largest biofuels producer in the U.S., WRI World Resources Institute, Refugees International and the National Council for Science and the Environment.
