PCIC 2013 – Wednesday Lunch Speaker
The overhead aging U.S. electricity infrastructure is ill equipped to withstand the increasing severity and frequency of storms, leaving major portions of the country without power for extended periods of time. To make matters worse the grid is unable to eliminate power quality events that disrupt operation and damage equipment for the growing U.S. digital economy. Forward thinking policy makers in restructured states are now looking to microgrids (i.e. private investment) to assist with recovery from major outages and provide ancillary services to improve grid reliability and power quality. Campuses and petrochemical facilities can now get paid to help improve overall grid service. Learn how petrochemical facilities can achieve higher levels of performance (reliability, environment, power efficiency, and power quality) while becoming grid service providers.
John Kelly, executive director of the Galvin Electricity Initiative and the Perfect Power Institute™, is leading research into improved electricity governance models and the development of innovative Perfect Power prototypes. A founder of the National Energy Center for Sustainable Communities (www.necsc.us), Kelly received a degree of Bachelor of Science in Energy Engineering from the University of Illinois, Chicago and a certificate in Environmental Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
