Public Policy Consulting
Ron Binz is a principal at Public Policy Consulting, specializing in energy economics and policy, with numerous domestic and international clients. Over a 35 year career, Ron has written, spoken and testified extensively on a broad range of topics in energy policy and regulation.
From 2007 to 2011 Ron chaired the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, appointed by Colorado Governor Bill Ritter. He led the Colorado PUC in implementing the many policy changes championed by the Governor to bring forward Colorado’s “New Energy Economy.”
In June 2013, President Obama nominated Ron to become Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). His nomination was opposed by the coal industry and conservative political groups, who argued that he would be biased toward renewable energy and energy efficiency. Following a confirmation hearing in the Senate, Ron asked the President to withdraw his name from consideration.
Ron has testified before Congressional committees sixteen times.
