Utility Management Software Development: Mr. Young is part of the MEI team that developed a utility tracking database that allows clients to select a utility type by facility. The system conducts instant bill reconciliations using built-in tariff rates that have saved clients millions of dollars. Numerous reporting capabilities supported management decision-making, procurement activities, strategic planning, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) calculations, and baseline development for energy services projects.

Tariff Modeling: Mr. Young has developed bundled and unbundled tariff models and auditing capability for utilities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, and other states. These models support bill auditing, tariff analysis, development of “shopping credits,” and evaluation of the impact of deregulation and commodity purchasing.

Energy Market Analysis: Mr. Young’s market analysis of the electricity markets in the PEPCO, BGE, and Allegheny service territories supported the procurement of third party electricity for Montgomery County, MD, and surrounding municipalities. The County solicited and evaluated bids using a database software package developed for the purpose of evaluating multiple bids on different sets of accounts.
