Chris Loughren

Chris Loughren

Manager, Commercial Energy Solutions

As Manager of Commercial Electricity Solutions Chris works closely with the Bruce Power Direct team to help them create custom energy management solutions and to ensure all clients’ electricity needs are consistently met.

Chris has over 10 years of experience in Ontario’s energy industry in various capacities from regulatory affairs, new business development and client services. Before coming to Bruce Power, he worked closely with some of Ontario’s largest electricity consumers at the Independent Electricity Systems Operator (IESO), helping them to gain a better understanding of the electricity marketplace and realize their energy management needs.

Chris holds a degree in Economics and Applied Statistics from the University of Toronto, and is a self-proclaimed energy and computer geek. Inspired by emerging energy and technology trends, specifically within the field of intelligent efficiency, he is passionate about providing clients with a thorough understanding of their consumption data in order to help reduce their energy consumption and spend.

Outside the walls of BPD, he enjoys mountain biking and canoeing – activities that ironically enough, do not require electricity.
