EXPERTISE

ercotiso-aspetratio
ERCOT ISO
  • Ryan started his career at ERCOT in the early 2000’s shortly after the de-regulated market began. It was during this time while in the market development group that Ryan became a subject matter expert in ERCOT systems, market rules, procedures, and the stakeholder process.  In the fall of 2003, the ERCOT Stakeholders began developing Protocols to implement a Nodal market.  Ryan’s roles at ERCOT allowed him to work with ERCOT Stakeholders and internal ERCOT staff to shape the design of the ERCOT Nodal market
  • Ryan leveraged this experience and knowledge when he left ERCOT to join AEP.  While at AEP, he educated AEP’s wholesale customers and internal staff on the upcoming nodal market and kept the commercial trading and marketing teams apprised of any market rule changes that could impact AEP’s commercial interests.  Ryan was able to work closely with the commercial trading and marketing teams to commercialize regulatory initiatives at both ERCOT and the PUCT to position the company to capitalize on them
