As inverters are the brain of PV systems, the advancements of inverter technology will lead the energy industry in providing smarter individual systems and a smarter, more interconnected grid. There are multiple benefits that smart inverters can currently offer the grid, but what is the next step?
Director of Code Compliance
After pursuing highly technical careers in oil and gas exploration and commercial HVAC, he realized his real calling was in renewable energy where he continues to inspire people. It became abundantly obvious that in the world around him, a viable source of clean energy had to be adopted. His college physics teacher always encouraged him to follow his passions and avoid embracing a single solution. In 2005 he made a pivot and started a budding career in the solar industry at Sharp Electronics Corporation. Since then he has contributed to deploying a breadth of cutting edge solar solutions from record high efficiency triple junction solar modules to record efficiency inverters with integrated EV chargers. He’s served on numerous standards writing committees and collaborated with industry leaders on smart inverter policies and interconnection. In his personal life he enjoys flamenco guitar, sustainable agriculture, and teaching music to children through the violin. Or, perhaps he can be found surfing the swell in Southern California, residing with his loving wife and two beautiful daughters.
