Dr. Sergici is a Principal in The Brattle Group’s Boston, MA office with expertise in electricity markets and applied econometrics.
At Brattle, the focus of Dr. Sergici’s work has been on assisting electric utilities, regulators, market operators, and technology firms in their strategic questions related to energy efficiency, demand response, distributed generation, and understanding behavior of electricity prosumers. Dr. Sergici has been at the forefront of the design and analysis of dynamic pricing, enabling technology, and behavior-based energy efficiency programs in North America.
Dr. Sergici has completed numerous resource planning projects that involved development of scenarios and strategies for electric systems to meet long-range electric demand while considering the growth of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and other demand-side resources. She also has significant expertise in development of load forecasting models, ratemaking for electric utilities, and energy litigation. Most recently, in the context of the New York Reforming the Energy Vision (NYREV) Initiative, Dr. Sergici has been studying the incentives required for and the impacts of incorporating large quantities of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) including energy efficiency, demand response, solar PVs, and energy storage in New York.
Dr. Sergici is a frequent presenter on the economic analysis of DERs and regularly publishes in academic and industry journals. She received her PhD in Applied Economics from Northeastern University in the fields of applied econometrics and industrial organization.
