Product Director, Brady Technologies
As an energy trader, Chris was present at two market openings before Heading up EDF Energy’s Trading and Operations capabilities between 2009 and 2017. As Vice Chair of the Power Trading Committee and as Chair of Energy UK’s Wholesale Markets subcommittee, Chris helped create the current Energy market we have today, making changes to the Energy trading products, negotiating the Mandatory Market Making rules as well as making changes to allow customer’s assets to be re-optimised closer to real time. In 2017 Chris delivered a distributed trading capability (Powershift) into EDF, allowing customers to access markets alongside EDF’s own fleet of power stations and batteries. EDFs Powershift is now a leading player in the UK flexibility market optimising batteries, engines and DSR on behalf of EDF’s customers and is part of EDFs international group of flexibility offerings. At Brady, Chris is now leading on the delivery of a short term power trading SaaS platform . Our PowerDesk solution will allow energy traders to operate in this new decarbonised, intermittent and decentralised world of energy trading.
Chris has a background in Physics and complements this with an MBA from INSEAD.
