1st client! UniGen Reources is a startup in California, developing  software to facilitate integration of renewable power. I am helping UniGen with commercialization strategies.

I have been and am involved in several World Bank projects, all around disruptive technology and infrastructure. For the Chief Economist for Sustainable Development I crafted scenarios, led a workshop and authored a paper on incorporating disruptive technologies (AI, 3D Printing, MaaS, distributed gen, etc.) into infrastructure planning. For the Energy and Extractives Global Practice, I am helping them understand a suite of disruptive technologies such as distributed energy resources and digitization as they evaluate how to adjust their own programs. And I helped a cross-Bank group create educational pieces on the use of disruptive techs for sustainable development.

For the Aspen Institute’s  Energy & Environment Program, I wrote a paper simplifying some of the most complex and important transformations happening in the US power sector. Those include the “3 Ds:” decentralization, digitization, de-carboninzation, as well as capital turnover of infrastructure, the changing fuel mix, and regulatory reform. The key to this work was untangling the interwoven threads connecting all of these trends. Aspen will be releasing the paper as a series of blogs on their new newsletter.

 I am very proud to be one of the inaugural members of ESA’s Technical Advisory Council. As energy storage plays an increasingly important role in our power system, ESA’s voice as a champion for storage will be more critical. I’m also authoring several white papers for ESA on a variety of topics.

I am helping the Natural Resources Defense Council analyze whether there may be a better, more economic and efficient way to pay for reliable power in the US.
