Constellation Becomes Charter Sponsor of Energy Research Council

Competitive supplier joins list of leading energy companies that sponsor the consortium’s research

Salisbury, Maryland, December 16, 2013— The Energy Research Council (ERC) announced that Constellation, an Exelon company, is now a Charter Sponsor of ERC’s mid-sized business research program. Constellation joins a growing list of leading energy solutions companies that sponsor the ERC, including APPI Energy, ConEdison Solutions, Direct Energy, Liberty Power, and Washington Gas Energy Services.

A consortium of energy companies, the Energy Research Council conducts quarterly surveys to understand the energy needs, practices, and priorities of mid-sized companies. The ERC mission is to provide facts-based research and thought leadership that educates the mid-sized business market concerning effective energy acquisition and management practices. Reaching members of more than 100 trade associations and the broader business community, the ERC equips customers to make smart energy decisions.

“The profound change sweeping across the energy landscape will impact generators, grid managers, renewable developers, and energy buyers and sellers,” said Pancho Hall, Senior Vice President and Chief Sales Officer, Constellation. “As a company with experience in all of those sectors, we believe ERC’s research mission is a vital component in developing next generation products and services for customers.” The council’s syndicated online surveys examine the types of products and services buyers are interested in procuring, and additional market drivers important to the supplier community. “The knowledge gained is used to improve the products and services offered to customers by the ERC sponsors,” explained James Moore, Ph.D., President of the Energy Research Council.

Results from the research drive an array of initiatives that will benefit energy companies, including articles, webinars, white papers, social media, digital publications, and educational events. For more information about the ERC, visit or contact James Moore at 410-749-5519 or
