Andrew Campbell Appointed to The Western Energy Imbalance Market Governing Body

July 5, 2022

Energy Institute Executive Director, Andrew Campbell, has been appointed to the Western Energy Imbalance Market (WEIM) Governing Body for a three year-term beginning on July 1, 2022. The WEIM was designed to find and deliver the lowest-cost resources to meet immediate power needs across the western US and increase renewable energy production.

Andrew will continue in his role as Executive Director at the Energy Institute, where he serves as a bridge between the research community, and business and policy leaders on energy economics and policy topics. Prior to arriving at UC Berkeley, he worked for residential energy management company, Tendril, and grid sensor provider, Sentient Energy, helping both companies navigate the energy regulatory environment. For five years Andrew served as an advisor to California Public Utilities Commissioners Rachelle Chong and Nancy Ryan where he successfully led efforts to adopt policies on grid modernization investments and data access; regulatory authority over electric vehicle charging; demand response; dynamic pricing for utilities; and quality standards for liquefied natural gas. Andrew has been on the WEIM Governance Review Committee for the past two years, and serves on the Power Association of Northern California (PANC) Board of Directors.

“I’d like to welcome Andrew Campbell to the WEIM Governing Body,” said Stacey Crowley, ISO vice president for external affairs. “His extensive industry background will be critical as western stakeholders work with the ISO to further develop its market policies and governance to provide more benefits while improving operational efficiencies for all of its partners.”

Congratulations, Andy!
