Power Advisory LLC, a leading North American management consulting firm that specializes in electricity sector matters and solutions, is pleased to announce the addition of two new hires to their team: Kris Aksomitis, Director and Heejin Ryu, Manager, based in Colorado.  Kris and Heejin will both be joining the US team and have a broad understanding of the US power markets.

Kris Aksomitis, Director, is an energy economist and financial analyst with 20 years of experience in the electricity industry. Kris has worked in a number of analytic and commercial roles over the last 20+ years, and has recently rejoined Power Advisory from Liberty Power, where he was the Senior Director of Market Strategy. In this role he evaluated renewable energy projects across North America and evaluated the strategic fit of assets, technologies, contracts or geographies within the overall long-term corporate portfolio. He was responsible for setting long-term revenue assumptions, market risk evaluation and assisted with providing market context for siting, project design and contracting choices. He worked on a range of early to late-stage development projects in NYISO, PJM, MISO, ERCOT, CAISO, SPP and AESO, as well as operating projects in ERCOT, CAISO, MISO and PJM. He was involved as the internal market expert in numerous commercial processes including project acquisition and asset sell-downs. In a prior role at the AESO, he worked in the Market Design group as a Program Manager. He was responsible for developing and evolving market rules related to intertie operation, ancillary services and wind integration. Kris has also served as the Manager of Market Analysis at TransAlta and was responsible for price forecasting and analytical support for business development, commercial and regulatory functions. Kris holds an MA in Economics from the University of Calgary, with a focus on competition theory.  Kris will be helping to expand Power Advisory’s business across the US.   Kris’ LinkedIn profile can be found here https://www.linkedin.com/in/kris-aksomitis-b547986b/

Heejin Ryu, Manager, brings considerable expertise in the energy industry to Power Advisory.  She worked as an energy trader for Constellation Energy (a division of Exelon) in various roles over the course of a 10-year period, becoming one of Constellation’s top traders.  For the majority of her time there, she was Director of Wholesale Trading for New England.  She also had roles that involved risk management and customer supply.  She monetized portfolio performance by devising hedging plans to administer fuel procurement and power market offers, ensuring short and long-term optimization of Constellation’s 4,700 MW combined-cycle natural gas and dual-fuel units.  She has a deep understanding of wholesale power pricing, capacity, ancillary services, and RECs.  Previously, Heejin worked as an architect, specializing in high rise buildings.  She has a Master’s degree in architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology, and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Heejin will be managing various projects for the US team.
