What We Do
The Office of Energy Policy and Innovation (OEPI) provides leadership in the development and formulation of policies and regulations to address emerging issues affecting wholesale and interstate energy markets. The Office will undertake significant outreach to other regulators and industry, will conduct studies and prepare reports, and will recommend policy reforms to the Commission for consideration. The Office will work in close coordination with other offices within the Commission to develop proposals and effectuate change. OEPI will focus, among other things, on the following areas to bring about reforms that advance the goals of the Commission, taking into account energy and environmental concerns.

  • Demand Response
  • Distributed Generation
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Enabling advanced technologies (e.g., advanced metering and communications technologies)
  • Smart Grid Standards
  • Transmission Issues (e.g., pricing, cost allocation and siting)
  • Integration of Renewable Energy
  • Storage
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Operational and Market Efficiency (electric markets and interstate pipeline)
  • Carbon and greenhouse gas issues (e.g., clean coal, carbon sequestration, carbon trading)

OEPI is led by Office Director Jamie L. Simler and Associate Director James A. Pederson.
