Jason Mann leads FTI Consulting’s Regulated Industries and Energy Markets group. Jason's primary focus is on the energy sector, although he works across a range of regulated sectors including payments systems, water, telecoms, healthcare and airports.
With 25 years’ experience of working in energy markets, Jason has worked extensively in the British energy market from the commencement of the liberalisation process to the current day. He has worked closely with regulated companies such as National Grid, the energy market regulator, Ofgem and wholesale market participants on the design and operation of the wholesale gas and power market. He leads a global team of electricity market design experts from Europe, USA and Australia and advises clients globally on developments in wholesale electricity markets to better facilitate the transition away from carbon-based electricity generation to renewables generation.
He also has extensive experience of network regulation and tariff setting – being closely involved since the 1990s in the development of regulatory regimes for gas and electricity networks. Jason is a leading advisor on the development and operation of cross border electricity transmission assets (known as interconnectors) – having advised more than 20 different projects throughout Europe, Australia and Southern Africa on a range of market, regulatory and valuation issues.
Jason has also considerable experience internationally - having worked in the energy sectors of USA, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Romania, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Brazil, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Oman, Spain and Israel. Jason also is an advisor in energy asset transactions and has worked for a number of well-known financial market participants.
Outside of the energy sector, Jason advises clients in other regulated sectors such as telecoms, water, payment systems, airports, and healthcare.
