Relevant Experiences

In 1980-1982 I ran the alternate energy program for the former Ebasco Services. In 1983 I ran a project aimed at using photovoltaic cells to provide power for remotely located highway safety systems in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including lighting for two long tunnels. I am well versed in the economics of power generation and energy storage. Most recently I am one of the co-founders of AquaEnergy, which is a company formed with the intention of providing non-battery energy storage to independent power producers including wind farms and photovoltaic power systems. I am aware of the economic implications of the tariff issue on the solar industry.
