Mr. Wise is a Senior Research Engineer at Battelle PNNL's Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI) at the University of Maryland in College Park. Mr. Wise re-joined PNNL in 2002, after previously serving on the staff from 1990 to 1998 at Battelle's Washington DC Operations. His expertise is in the economic modeling and analysis of energy systems, with experience in both broad-scale energy policy analysis and in detailed financial analysis of private-sector electric power generation assets. In the early to mid 1990s, Mr. Wise was a key team member on the development and implementation of two leading economic and integrated assessment models, the Second Generation Model (SGM) and the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM), for which he served as the lead developer until 1998. Mr. Wise currently serves on the development team for JGCRI's ObjECTS model, a major new modeling and analysis framework for performing integrated assessments of global change. This new framework builds on the foundations and success of our SGM and GCAM models with a further focus on explicit technological and sectoral detail. It will form the quantitative backbone of our analysis for PNNL's Global Technology Strategy Program (GTSP) as well as much of our other policy, technology, and market analysis. From 1998 to 2002, Mr. Wise served as a Manager in ICF Consulting's private sector electric power consulting practice, where he modeled and analyzed future electric power market conditions for several leading private energy companies, international banks, and Wall Street credit rating agencies. Mr. Wise holds BS and MS degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech).
