The U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has hired Santiago Grijalva to lead its Power Systems Engineering Center.

Grijalva comes to NREL with both industry and academic experience, most recently from the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he held the position of Georgia Power Distinguished Professor and Strategic Energy Institute Associate Director for Electricity.

As part of the Energy Systems Integration team at NREL, Grijalva will provide leadership to develop the strategic direction of the Power Systems Engineering Center, enhance technical capabilities and steward core competencies that advance electric power technologies. He will also lead the execution of research, development and demonstration programs.

NREL says its power systems researchers work with the electric power transmission and distribution industries to optimize strategies for effectively interconnecting renewable resources within the existing electric power system and to provide improved management strategies for demand response and transportation electrification.
