Golden, CO 80401

Phone: 303.384.6565

Presented by Dave Mooney, Director of NREL’s Strategic Energy Analysis Center

What’s needed to integrate renewables at scale with U.S. electric grids? Join Dave Mooney, Director of NREL’s Strategic Energy Analysis Center (SEAC), for a discussion about the ongoing NREL work to examine renewable energy integration across the countries of North America.  Mooney will preview an NREL study that examines the costs and benefits of breaking down electrical fences in the United States and will describe the nation’s three separate grids and the benefits of their integration.  He will welcome question and engage in an interactive discussion about his life working to advance NREL’s mission.  You will see how NREL works with its partners to accelerate technology and knowledge transfer to the market, and what the Lab’s impact is on our national and the global energy landscape.

David Mooney is the center director of the Strategic Energy Analysis Center.  His analysis expertise includes strategic planning, broad knowledge base in technologies and markets for energy technologies and their integration into the current energy infrastructure, technical and operational knowledge of the photovoltaics technologies and industry, and design and cost analysis of concentrating solar power system configurations and integration into the electricity grid.  His primary research interests are in renewable and efficiency systems integration, energy infrastructure challenges, and utility industries, building efficiency technologies, market penetration, and commensurate impact on the energy infrastructure and greenhouse gas emissions, energy and climate policy analysis and the formulation and management of energy technology research and analysis
