“Jim’s insight and extensive work experience in the New York energy industry will provide valuable support for ECS’s operations and regulatory needs,” Marie Pieniazek, Chief Operating Officer for ECS.
Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
Energy Curtailment Specialists, Inc. (ECS), a leading Demand Response Provider in North America, announced today the hiring of industry expert James Scheiderich to serve as the company’s Senior Regulatory Affairs Specialist for the NYISO market. With over thirty years of energy industry experience, James will provide a key level of oversight for ECS’ New York market division.
Previously, James worked as a consultant for several years to the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), and remains an active participant in the NYISO stakeholder process. James played a pivotal role in the NYISO’s startup period, extending his input and support on both the wholesale and retail levels. Serving as chair of both the Business Issues Committee, for two terms, as well as the Market Structures Working Group, James also worked to mitigate a diverse range of market design issues prior to the NYISO start-up.
ECS, with headquarters located in Buffalo, has a large demand response customer base in New York State, having been present in the NY market since the company’s inception in 2001. Demand Response (DR) has since developed into a nationally recognized initiative to help maintain the stability of electrical grids and help reduce wholesale electricity prices. Demand Response provides significant financial benefits, as well as economic stimulation, to New York’s commercial and industrial sectors. Administering successful DR programs relies on a solid understanding of wholesale market rules within capacity-based markets. As Senior Regulatory Affairs Specialist James will advocate and promote ECS’ interests within the NYISO market stakeholder process.
“Jim’s insight and extensive work experience in the New York energy industry will provide valuable support for ECS’s operations and regulatory needs. We are excited to have Jim on our team and look forward to many more successful Demand Response seasons,” Marie Pieniazek, Chief Operating Officer for ECS.
