Energy storage expert Daniel Finn-Foley has joined PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life. As a leading advisor on clean energy transformation through a focus on long term policy and regulation, emerging technology, and fundamental uncertainty across the energy markets, Daniel’s perspective bolsters PA’s market leading position in advising clients on clean energy infrastructure investment while supporting utility strategic planning and decision-making. Daniel will also help PA further expand into global storage investment and strategy.

Daniel joins PA from Wood Mackenzie where he served as the Head of Energy Storage and led a team working on global energy storage market trends. He previously served as a Senior Consultant for energy technical consultancy DNV GL where he conducted research for the retail energy advisory service. He also served as a Program Analyst for the US Department of Energy.

Clients hire PA to anticipate the future, champion innovation, and unlock new potential in energy and utilities markets. In the last four years, PA’s US energy and utilities team advised on the development, purchase, sale, or financing of over $50 billion in clean energy infrastructure and over 30 projects involving the purchase or sale of electric, natural gas, and water utility and district energy businesses while advising regulators, utilities, investors, and other stakeholders on the potential clean energy transition path and associated impacts. PA also launched iPredict™, the world’s first artificially intelligent system for predicting failures in critical underground electricity distribution assets.

Aris Karcanias, Global Head of PA Consulting’s Energy and Utilities Practice, says: “We are delighted to welcome Daniel to the Energy and Utilities practice. He has spent the past decade studying the energy transition and will apply his expertise and leadership in the energy storage space to help unlock value for our clients.”

Daniel Finn-Foley, Energy Storage Expert at PA Consulting, says: “The energy and utility industry is in the middle of a transformation. Amidst this breakneck acceleration of decarbonization and decentralization, energy storage has emerged as a fulcrum that translates policy and economic force into real-world action, and its role will only increase over the coming decades. I'm thrilled to be joining PA Consulting and deepening their expertise and unique perspective on the market and helping clients chart these unfamiliar waters."
