The board of directors of the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) has named Henry Chao vice president of system and resource planning. He was promoted to the position from his role as director of system and resource planning, a position he has held since joining the NYISO in April 2007.

"The NYISO board of directors recognized Henry Chao's superb performance in directing the NYISO's expanding array of planning responsibilities, ranging from resource adequacy to complex transmission planning studies," says Stephen G. Whitley, NYISO's president and CEO. "He is an essential contributor to the NYISO's leadership team, providing valuable technical analysis and strategic perspective."

Chao has more than 25 years of experience in electric utility planning and operations. Prior to joining the NYISO, he worked for ABB, an international power and automation technologies company, where he directed model development and analysis of bulk power markets. He previously worked for Siemens PTI, a Schenectady company that provides software, training and consulting services to utilities. He began his career in 1982 at the NARI Technology Development Co. Ltd., which provides automation hardware and software for the Chinese electric power industry.

Chao is senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and a member of the IEEE risk and reliability and probability methods subcommittee, system economics subcommittee, system control center subcommittee and power system planning committee.
