Mr. Ryan has a long and distinguished career in the global energy industry, including time at The AES Corporation where he served as President of AES Pacific, Chairman of AES Gener and Indianapolis Power & Light as well as Chief Operating Officer of AES. While at AES, Mr. Ryan pioneered the company’s move into the retail electricity market with the purchase of New Energy Ventures (today’s Constellation Energy), quickly turning NewEnergy into the largest deregulated electricity retailer in North America.
