    Program Overview

    Microgrid initiatives are emerging at the state and local levels as a means of increasing grid reliability and resiliency, lowering long term costs, and facilitating the enlarging scope of use of distributed energy and environmental resources. Directly or indirectly, the introduction of microgrids will have an impact on legal issues of particular interest to SEER members. Our featured speakers, nationally recognized on energy policy matters, are each industry leaders in the introduction of microgrid technology and are engaged in efforts to accelerate their use at the state and local levels, as well as nationally.

As its Director, he initiates and coordinates multidisciplinary work to address factors affecting the development and operation of energy microgrids.  From September 2007 through April 2014 he served as editor-in-chief of Public Utilities Fortnightly. He represents Microgrid Institute in a collaboration with the U.S. DOE and the National Energy Technology Laboratory to design, simulate and test microgrid control systems in the Maryland suburbs.
