Dr. Joe Nyangon is a Senior Power and Utilities Expert in the Energy & Utilities Division at SAS Institute, leading the design and development of new field-engineered advanced analytics solutions targeting decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization domains. He has 15+ years of experience in the energy sector ranging from energy economics and policy, energy modeling and decision analytics, infrastructure investment, risk pricing strategies, and innovation systems. Working at the leading edge of electricity market design and regulatory innovation, he has assessed alternative utility regulation and pioneering grid modernization models like the New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) and Great Britain’s RIIO (Revenue = Incentives + Innovation + Outputs)—Ofgem’s framework for setting price controls for utility network companies operating in the electricity and downstream natural gas markets in Great Britain. In particular, he has evaluated resource adequacy and capacity market design models that blend renewable energy and natural gas resources to incentivize DER (distributed electricity) development and help deliver competitive ROI (return on investment) for customers. Prior to joining SAS, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Energy Economics and Engineering Systems at the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy, University of Delaware. He holds or has held, academic affiliations at Columbia University, the Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines, the Initiative for Sustainable Energy Policy at Johns Hopkins University, the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Delaware, and the Foundation for Renewable Energy and Environment. He has published over 60 publications and is on the editorial boards of Wiley Energy and Environment, the Journal of Smart Cities and Society, and Energy Research and Social Science journals. He earned a Ph.D. and two masters’ degrees focusing on energy systems engineering, computing systems, and energy economics from Columbia University, University of Delaware, University of Greenwich, and I have a bachelor’s degree in engineering.
