Chris MacCracken joined ICF in 2000. He currently leads the Power Team within EAI’s Commercial Energy Division. That team advises developers and owners of electricity generation assets, as well as other parties with interests in the North American power sector, on how rapidly changing market structures, regulations, and other market drivers will impact their assets and the sector over the coming years. Chris’ expertise is in the impact of environmental regulation on the power sector. He helps clients develop strategies to address the impacts of state and federal regulations on markets and generation portfolios. Chris has supported the member states of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), the only regional carbon dioxide cap and trade program in the U.S., from its developmental stages back in 2005 through the recently completed 2016 Program Review. Chris also led many of ICF’s efforts for commercial clients under the Clean Power Plan.
Chris has an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University and a bachelor’s degree from University of California, Santa Cruz.
