Lewis Heather

Lewis Heather is a managing consultant in CEPA’s regulation & competition practice. He has worked internationally across the gas and electricity market supply chain on wholesale, networks and retail market issues.

In particular, Lewis has experience supporting public and private sector clients with incentive design, security of supply, market design, conduct and monitoring, system operation, network charging and market research. For example, in a project for the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators, Lewis led a CEPA team to develop estimates of the value of lost load (a measure of the value consumers place on a continuous electricity supply) for every consumer in Europe for the first time.

He has advised Ofgem and National Grid on regulatory framework and incentive design in the presence of the challenges and opportunities presented by new technologies. He has also led the development of new charging frameworks, for example to align the Irish gas transmission tariff arrangements with the EU tariff network code.

Lewis specialises in the application of behavioural insights to regulated markets and has worked with the Behavioural Insights Team to develop and test prompts to engage in the energy markets. He is a guest lecturer on applied behavioural economics at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (BGSE) and has supported research into the impacts of digitalisation on energy market consumers.

Lewis has a Master’s degree in Economics from BGSE (Barcelona).
