"Who's the New Kid?"
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Scott Miller. As you may know, I am the incoming Executive Director of the Western Power Trading Forum (WPTF) and, while I’ll be working with Gary for the next 6 months to ensure a smooth transition, I am aware of the “big shoes” into which I am stepping. Gary and the members of WPTF have done an incredible job surviving and ultimately thriving in some difficult circumstances. Back in 1998 when WPTF was created – a year later I convinced my company (PG&E National Energy Group) to join – we all thought the growth of electric markets was going to be a linear path up. Well, for reasons we all understand and about which I won’t go into now, the markets didn’t quite evolve that way.
