Part I of this paper describes power operations in elliptic cohomology in terms of isogenies of the underlying elliptic curve. Part II discusses a relationship between equivariant elliptic cohomology and representations of loop groups. Part III investigates the representation of theoretic considerations which give rise to the power operations discussed in Part I.
