Biography:

John Fazio has been a systems analyst for the Pacific Northwest Power and Conservation Council since 1984. His primary duty is to assist in the development of the Council's regional power plan. He is the co-chair of the Council’s Resource Adequacy Advisory Committee’s technical subcommittee. He is a member (and former chairman) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Resource Adequacy Working Group, a subcommittee of the Risk, Reliability and Probabilistic Applications committee. He is also a member of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Probabilistic Assessment Working Group (PAWG). His work for the Council focuses on assessing power supply adequacy, resource cost effectiveness, impacts of alternative hydroelectric operations and climate change effects. John also provides analytical support toward the development of the Council's fish and wildlife program.

 

Born in Genoa, Italy in 1952, John immigrated to the United States with his family in 1955. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1973. In 1974 he received a B.S. degree in physics from the University of Portland. As a doctoral candidate in physics at the University of Oregon, John’s research was in particle physics at the school’s Van der Graaf accelerator. He received an MS degree in physics in 1976 but before completing his Ph.D. thesis, he chose to move into the field of operations research and accepted a position at the Bonneville Power Administration. He has taught physics at the University of Portland, University of Oregon, and Concordia College. He has also worked on national and international projects related to hydroelectric operations.
