Ken Nelson brings a uniquely broad perspective to the REC market. He has traded the North American energy markets since 1989 in biofuels, propane, natural gas and power and has been active in RECs as a supplier, aggregator and compliance buyer.

During more than 20 years in physical and financial energy markets, Ken has managed regional power desks (where he traded the term, spot, speculative, and asset books); and traded natural gas, power, transmission congestion, capacity, emissions, and renewable energy credits. His experience spans every NERC power region and North American gas region, including Canada and Mexico. Prior to co-founding Blue Delta, Ken led the renewables desk at Element Markets.
