CES Research Fellow Andrew Owens retired from Entergy at the end of 2023 as Director, Regulatory Research & Strategy. He joined the company in 1998 and spent 25+ years in several roles, including a stint in the deregulated retail electricity market in Texas. Most of his Entergy career was focused on regulatory and policy matters. From 2015-2023, he led a team responsible for providing support and strategy to Entergy’s five public utilities on various regulatory matters and policy issues related to ratemaking and emerging technologies, including smart grid, energy efficiency and demand response, distributed energy resources (DERs), renewables, electric vehicles and charging infrastructure, and energy storage.  

From 1991 to 1996, Andrew worked in environmental consulting and focused on federal and state air pollution issues, policies, modeling simulations, and permitting. He earned a B.S. in chemical engineering with distinction from Iowa State in 1991 and received an M.S. in management (MBA) from Georgia Tech in 1998. He is a registered professional engineer in Georgia and a licensed CPA in Louisiana.
