Jade Alice Eaton (Speaker)
JD, Catholic University and expert in energy antitrust with the Department of Justice

Jade Alice Eaton graduated from Bryn Mawr College and the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University. She has worked in and out of government on a wide range of energy and competition issues. After graduation from law school, she worked at DOE enforcing the Emergency Petroleum Allocation Act then moved to the Department of Justice Antitrust Division in the Energy Section. She left the government and worked in private practice on a mix of energy and competition issues in the oil pipeline, gas pipeline and marketing, and electricity industries.

Since 1991, she has worked in the Antitrust division's Transportation, Energy and Agriculture section where she continues to focus on issues involving regulated and formerly regulated energy companies. Her work involves investigation of mergers and acquisitions of energy assets including investigations culminating in consent decrees in U.S. v. Enova Corp. and U.S. v. Exelon. Ms Eaton has also lead civil non-merger matters including U.S. v Rochester Gas and Electric.

Ms. Eaton has worked extensively both in the US and abroad on regulation and competition in natural gas and electricity with governments of Australia, Japan as well as countries relatively new to market economies in Eastern Europe and the Baltics. She has participated in seminars for staff of competition and energy agencies of Mexico, Brazil and the European Union as well as working on energy issues with the International Competition Network. Closer to home, she was a
contributor to the Electric Energy Market Competition Task Force Report submitted to Congress pursuant to EPAct 2005.

In 2007, Ms. Eaton received the Antitrust Division Award of Distinction. Most recently, Ms Eaton was awarded the 2008-2009 Victor Kramer Fellowship which allowed her to study energy and competition law and policy at the University of Chicago.
