Shibani Ghosh is one of the principal investigators with GCxN. Her experience provides important expertise that she can now use helping startups test their “Grid of the Future” technologies.
At NREL, most staff members are one-of-a-kind. That’s what you would expect in a national lab full of creative researchers. But even among them, principal researcher Anthony Florita, Ph.D. stands out. In a group of almost all electrical engineers, he is the only one trained as an architectural engineer. Rather than top-down thinking about the grid, he has a unique bottom-up approach starting with understanding the actual power demands from buildings.
In the case of Antora Energy’s thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy storage technology, what’s old is new again. And Myles Steiner, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is helping the company to reinvigorate it.
NREL Battery Control Engineer Ying Shi is one of the four lead researchers working on the inaugural cohort of GCxN. As a battery-system engineer, Shi was excited to help Feasible test out its diagnosis system, which uses acoustics to detect battery degradation.
Santosh Veda is leading an NREL research team to test Electrical Grid Monitoring’s (EGM’s) Meta-Alert™ system, also known as “Eyes on the Grid.”
