Wilson Energy Economics – Consulting and expert services for the electric power and natural gas industries
In the U.S. and many other countries, the electric power and natural gas industries are now characterized by a complex mix of regulation and competition. These industries are subject to constant change due to refinements to regulatory and market design policies, new technologies, evolving market forces, and other pressures.
James F. Wilson, Principal, is an economist who has been consulting on the economic and policy issues arising from the interplay of competition and regulation in the electric power and natural gas industries for thirty years. Recent projects have involved market design, market analysis, resource adequacy and capacity markets, contract litigation and damages, forecasting and market evaluation, pipeline rate cases, and allegations of market manipulation, among many others. Mr. Wilson has been involved in electricity restructuring and wholesale market design in PJM, New England, Ontario, MISO, California and other regions, and
also spent five years in Russia advising on the reform, restructuring and development of the Russian electric power and natural gas industries. He has submitted affidavits and testified in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and state regulatory proceedings, and his papers have appeared in the Energy Journal, Electricity Journal, Public Utilities Fortnightly and other publications. He holds the M.S. degree in Engineering-Economic Systems from Stanford University and the A.B. degree from Oberlin College.
