Friday Dec 12 2014 Lunch with Speaker
Topic: The Effects of Rail Transportation Constraints on the Power Industry

Jamie Heller, President of Hellerworx, will talk about the fuel supply constraint issues that have impacted coal-fired generators in 2014, which have led to concerns over reliability in SPP and MISO.

NOTE:  This lunch will be at Chinatown Gardens, not at the usual Carmine's location

Speaker: Jamie Heller, President of Hellerworx

Jamie Heller is President of Hellerworx, Inc., which he founded in 2001 after previously founding Fieldston Company, Fieldston Publications, and co-founding Fieldston Transportation Services.  In 1998, he sold all of the businesses to various publicly traded companies, worked for three years as a Senior Partner with PA Consulting, and then moved back home where he manages himself and at times other colleagues.

Jamie has hung around coal and transportation for 35 years which makes him an expert; and hung around economists for an equal amount of time, but claims no expertise in that area. Jamie consults in energy, environmental and transportation matters.

He works on strategic planning, market analysis and contracting matters for generators, energy producers, and transporters. He also testifies periodically as an expert and is the author of two highly unprofitable books on coal and coal transportation.  He is an investor in White Oak Resources which just started up its 7 MMtpy longwall operation in Southern Illinois, owns and leases railcars, and has served in various board and advisory roles.  He has an MBA from Harvard Business School and an electrical engineering degree from Northwestern University.
