Following a rigorous Canadian search, Peter Gregg was selected as the next president and CEO of Nova Scotia Power Inc.

The president and CEO of Emera Inc., Scott Balfour, recently announced that Peter Gregg will become the next president and CEO of Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI). Following a rigorous Canadian search that attracted a long list of high-caliber internal and external energy executives, Gregg was selected as the successful candidate.

"We are excited for Peter to join the Emera team as president and CEO of the NSPI," said Balfour. "Peter brings deep experience in the Canadian energy sector with a focus on energy efficiency, renewables, and innovation. He is joining a strong team at the NSPI that's committed to transitioning to a lower carbon future while ensuring reliability, affordability, and a superior customer experience for Nova Scotians."

Gregg is currently the president and CEO of the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) in Ontario. The IESO is an independent organization that oversees the safe and reliable operation of the bulk electricity system in Ontario, ensuring affordable electricity is available when and where people need it. The IESO also operates the wholesale electricity markets, plans for Ontario's future electricity needs, focuses on energy efficiency and demand management programs, and works with partners to foster innovation in support of system cost effectiveness and reliability. Prior to his role at the IESO, Gregg served as the president and CEO of Enersource and COO at Hydro One Networks where he was heavily focused on energy distribution in Ontario.

"I was attracted to this exciting opportunity because the NSPI is recognized as an innovative and customer-centric utility with an impressive track record and plan for the continued transition to cleaner energy — all at a pace that is affordable for customers," said Gregg. "I am looking forward to joining the NSPI and working with the dedicated team to continue to deliver for customers in Nova Scotia."

Gregg will officially join the NSPI team in mid-November 2020.
