R. Scott Moore

Year Inducted: 2024

Scott Moore has earned the respect of the electric utility industry, with many looking to him for guidance. During his more than 30 years with Alabama Power Company, he has established deep roots in his professional community, and his leadership has led to one of the most data-driven and technologically advanced power grids in the country.

As senior vice president of Power Delivery at Alabama Power, he leads both the Transmission and Distribution organizations. Moore oversees a system with more than 1.5million poles and towers and over84,000 miles of power lines spread across 45,000 square miles.

He began his career with Alabama Power in 1988 as a cooperative education student, joining the company fulltime after graduating from The University of Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in 1991. He went on to earn a Master of Business Administration from The University of Alabama in 1993 and is a registered Professional Engineer.

After roles of increasing responsibility, he was named vice president of Transmission in 2012. Four years later, he was tapped for his current role.

Building the grid of the future has been a top priority for Moore. Under Moore’s leadership, Power Delivery has also vastly improved its programs to increase reliability and enhance the lives of customers through the undergrounding program to convert overhead distribution power lines to reduce disruption. His vision and foresight have also empowered his teams to position Alabama Power as an industry leader in implementing smart grid technology solutions that enhance automation and security.

He has also been instrumental in deploying fiber in the company’s transmission and distribution system to allow for advanced grid technology that improves the resiliency and dependability of the electric grid. As part of this effort, Moore and his teams have played a major role in bringing broadband fiber to rural areas by creating public-private partnerships, promoting sound legislation, and collaborating companywide.

His teams have been recognized for power restoration after storms including two emergency response awards from the Edison Electric Institute for recovery and assistance efforts following Winter Storm Landon and a string of severe thunderstorms and tornados that passed through Alabama in March 2022.

Moore serves on the board of directors for the Southeastern Electric Exchange and is an active member of the Association of Edison Illuminating Companies. He serves as the chairman of the Edison Electric Institute’s National Response Executive Committee, leading industrywide efforts to support restoration resource needs of member utilities during major outages.

He also uses his position to further engineering and technological education, serving on the UA College of Engineering Leadership Board and is a founding member of the board of trustees for the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering.
