William Hogan, an American economist, championed the development of competitive electricity markets in the US, the UK, New Zealand, and elsewhere. He is widely regarded as one of the principal forces in moving electricity markets from regulated monopolies to more competitive markets. His efforts included designing the market structures and market rules by which regional transmission organizations, in various forms, coordinate bid-based markets for energy, ancillary services, and financial transmission rights. While a faculty member at Stanford University, Hogan founded the Energy Modeling Forum (EMF). He was also former president of the International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE). Currently, Hogan is the Research Director at the Harvard Electricity Policy Group and Director at the Harvard Kennedy School Fellows Program for energy policy research.
