FERC Chairman Rich Glick has named Valerie Teeter to the position of Deputy Director of the Office of Energy Market Regulation, the office that deals with matters involving energy markets, tariffs and pipeline rates related to electric utility and natural gas and oil pipeline facilities and services.
The appointment marks Teeter’s return to FERC, where she began her energy industry career in 2008 when she joined the Office of Energy Market Regulation as an energy industry analyst. Shortly thereafter, she became a part of the new Office of Energy Policy and Innovation, where she spent the next decade of her career.
Teeter most recently served as Senior Manager for Federal Regulatory Affairs at Exelon Corporation, where she formulated and framed policy positions and strategy on several electricity policy issues, including transmission planning and electric infrastructure resilience, at FERC and the Department of Energy. She also served as the company’s technical expert on regional and interregional transmission planning, electric transmission ratemaking and organized market energy, ancillary services and capacity markets, as well as Commission regulations and policies. She also coordinated staff from various Exelon departments to proactively engage on transmission and distributed energy resource policy issues in stakeholder processes and before the Commission.
Teeter is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.
