10 September 2015

NERA Economic Consulting, a leading global provider of economic advice and analysis in business, legal, and regulatory matters, today announced that Dr. Glenn R. George has rejoined NERA as a Senior Vice President in the firm’s Global Energy, Environment, and Network Industries Practice. Dr. George was previously a Vice President with NERA from 2006 to 2010.

Dr. George is based in NERA’s Washington, DC office, where he advises clients on the economics of electric power, natural gas, and related markets as they evolve in response to political, regulatory, and technological change. Drawing on his background as an engineer and an economist, he applies unparalleled expertise in energy policy, regulation, and technologies—generation, storage, efficiency and demand response, reliability, and resource and transmission planning—to the emerging issues facing utility companies, their regulators, and investors.

“It is my pleasure to welcome Glenn back to NERA on behalf of my colleagues,” said NERA President Dr. Lawrence Wu. “Glenn’s background as a seasoned economist, engineering expert, and business consultant will provide NERA clients in the energy sector with unique and highly specialized insights and solutions to help them navigate the rapidly evolving regulatory and competitive environment these firms are facing. He is a great addition to NERA’s Energy, Environment, and Network Industries Practice.”

“Thank you to my NERA colleagues for the warm welcome,” said Dr. George. “NERA’s standing as the preeminent provider of economic and regulatory expertise in the energy and environment space made rejoining the firm an incredibly exciting opportunity for me. I look forward to working with NERA’s high-caliber roster of global experts as we deliver rigorous economic thinking and quantitative analysis with practical solutions to our clients.”

Dr. George has three decades of experience in the global energy sector as an engineer, policymaker, entrepreneur, investment banker, economic consultant, regulatory expert, and strategist. His areas of specialization include rate design, regulatory strategy, valuation, asset securitization, risk assessment, energy efficiency, renewables, nuclear power, business transformation, power market design and monitoring, and damage calculation. His management consulting work addresses strategy, transactions, business transformation, regulatory issues, and complex commercial disputes, especially involving construction, sale, valuation, licensing, and operation of power plants, transmission and distribution systems, oil and gas facilities (including LNG export terminals), and other infrastructure. He is a sought-after analyst, speaker, expert witness, and consultant.

Dr. George applies interdisciplinary approaches to formulating and implementing public policy, managing and consulting to organizations, developing deep industry insight, and helping transform organizations. He has consulted in a variety of industries, including financial services, natural gas and LNG, petroleum, chemicals, transportation, nuclear vendors, renewable resources, and power generation, transmission, and distribution. He has worked extensively in the US, Canada, the EU, and East Asia. His client and other relationships include corporations, government agencies, regulators, nonprofit organizations, and especially investor-owned utilities.

Dr. George holds a PhD in public policy (with a concentration in energy economics and regulation) from Harvard University, and an MBA and a BS in mechanical engineering from Cornell University.
