The Future of Energy
Richard Glick chairs the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has had five Commissioners since the fourth of January of this year. Neil Chatterjee and Richard Glick are the veterans of the current quintet having started their terms in 2017. James Danly has just completed his first year. As for Allison Clements and Mark Christie, they're in their first months.
Glick became the Chair on the twenty-first of January. He's the eighteenth to have that responsibility, excluding the occasional acting Chairs, beginning with Charles Curtis when the FERC succeeded the Federal Power Commission in 1977. Fifteen of the Chairs have been men and three have been women, namely Martha Hesse, Elizabeth Anne Moler, and Cheryl LaFleur.
Followers of FERC know that as important as the Commissioners are, the Staff plays a major role too. Among the senior members of Staff are chief administrative law judge Carmen Cintron, general counsel Matt Christiansen, executive director Anton Porter, the directors, of energy infrastructure security, Joseph McClelland, of energy projects, Terry Turpin, of energy market regulation, Jette Gebhart, of electric reliability, Andrew Dodge, of energy policy and innovation, Jignasa Gadani, and of administrative litigation, John Kroeger, chief of staff Pamela Quinlan, and the secretary Kimberly Bose.
