His strategic vision makes him an invaluable asset, and he has participated in the negotiation of major international agreements.
Under his leadership, ZE has gone on to receive over 40 national and international awards. His most notable achievement includes ZE’s multi-award winning enterprise-level data management platform, ZEMA™. With a data ecosystem comprising over 1000 data sources, analytical functionalities, curve management, and integration capabilities, ZEMA is a technological feat made possible due to Dr. El-Ramly’s innovative vision and desire for excellence. It has proven to be a critical resource for all individuals and businesses associated with the energy and commodities sector.
Besides leading ZE to become a data management powerhouse, Dr. El-Ramly also developed a resource/demand-side energy management strategy, which led to the formation of BC Hydro’s globally syndicated and highly successful Power Smart Program.
