Full Text of JOE Listing:

ISO New England Inc. designs and runs a $10+ billion marketplace for buying and selling electricity, and oversees the physical power grid spanning the six states of New England. This system is constantly evolving as novel economic issues and new technologies emerge that are reshaping our energy future.

Economists at ISO-NE develop, substantiate, and articulate recommendations to improve the economic performance of the ISO’s markets. Given the diversity of markets and products transacted, and the rapid rate of technological innovation presently, there is no shortage of interesting and challenging market design questions. Drawing from a wide range of micro-economic fields, our economists use both theory and data, work in a positive, collaborative team environment, and are focused on advancing implementable ideas that have real-world impact. There is a lot going on at our organization to make the energy grid and its markets operate efficiently, to develop innovative market designs, and to bring a clean energy future to reality.

ISO New England provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics.
