Manage episode 217562042 series 1409393
Welcome to Part Three in a special six-part series of More Power To You, produced in partnership with the Maryland Clean Energy Center for National Clean Energy Week 2018. Each episode spotlights a different clean energy technology, and features some of the people and companies leading the way in Maryland.
In this episode we focus on distributed energy solutions. My guests are:
- Geoff Oxnam, CEO of American Microgrid Solutions
- Eric Wachsman, Director of the University of Maryland Energy and Innovation Institute, and CEO of Ion Storage Systems
- Michele Mitch-Peterson, Senior Business Consultant at Honeywell
Our conversation covers a range of issues that all stem from the electricity transition we’re in the midst of—from the old, centralized power grid to a smarter, networked and more distributed grid. We discuss how new technologies and ways of integrating them can make the system more efficient; reduce carbon emissions; improve grid security, reliability and sustainability; and serve as a huge job creation engine.
