Managing Director, Power
Chris Seiple

I oversee our entire Global Power business and sensor network, which includes North America, Europe, and will expand to other parts of the world soon. I've been managing energy information businesses and providing strategy and market analysis advice for gas and power sector companies for 20 years. I was previously a Senior Vice President at GE Energy Financial Services, where I developed a growth strategy for debt and equity power investments, determining key investment regions, technologies, partners, customers, and ways to differentiate GE’s capital. While at GE, I also served as SVP of Operations and Development, managing a 2,500 MW portfolio of power and transmission assets owned by GE EFS located in Florida, New Jersey, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Before GE, I led Cambridge Energy Research Associates operations and research in Europe, Russia, and the Caspian region. In that capacity, I oversaw CERA’s research on European Gas & Power issues and the Russian and Caspian energy industry. I was responsible for research on liquefied natural gas, emerging power generation technologies, environmental issues, and global power issues.

I began my career at Resource Data International (acquired by FT Energy and later McGraw Hill), where I ultimately led the US gas, coal, and power consulting practices, focusing on policy and market analysis.

I have a BA in Political Science and Russian Studies from Muhlenberg College and a MS in Energy Management and Policy from the University of Pennsylvania and the French Petroleum Institute.
