About ICF
Michael Sloan
Senior Managing Director, Gas Energy Markets
With over 35 years of experience, Michael provides analytical and regulatory support to assess the impact of decarbonization policy on gas utility clients.

Michael specializes in analytical and regulatory support for gas utilities, natural gas storage valuation and assessment, and propane demand analysis with more than 35 years of experience. He oversees economic studies of facility expansion projects, market assessments for corporate acquisitions, estimations of economic damages in litigation cases, and strategic analyses of regulatory issues.

In assessing the impact of decarbonization policy on natural gas utilities, Michael defines the role of natural gas utilities in supporting local, state, and national decarbonization objectives. He completed a comprehensive climate business plan for Washington Gas Light, illustrating the utility sector’s ability to contribute to a net-zero decarbonization policy.

In his role, Michael also completed the American Gas Association and New Jersey Resources studies on the impact of decarbonization policy on natural gas utilities and customers. He also conducted a major study on the potential for demand-side management to offset the need for new pipeline capacity for Enbridge Gas in Ontario.

Testifying in more than 35 proceedings, Michael gives evidence on various issues related to natural gas and power utility planning, including gas utility non-pipeline solutions, utility avoided costs, the economics of pipeline and storage investments and contracts, and natural gas liquidity issues (to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission).

Michael holds bachelor’s degrees in Economics and Policy Studies and Operations Research from Dartmouth College.
