Decentralizing and Democratizing Energy Supply
Lorenzo Kristov

Dr. Lorenzo Kristov is an independent consultant who continues to delve into areas initiated during his tenure at the California Independent System Operator (CAISO). His focus lies within the realm of electric system evolution, specifically toward an integrated-decentralized structure. The accelerating progression of distribution-connected energy resources (DER) and scalable control systems, coupled with the imperative for local governments and communities to cultivate resilient and environmentally sustainable local energy systems, propels the electric industry toward decentralization.

The presentationwill address the intricate interplay between electric system policy, structure, and market design. With a focus on “Building an Equitable, Resilient Energy Future,” Dr. Kristov will explore the imperative for local energy solutions in light of contemporary societal and environmental challenges.

This presentation offers a unique opportunity to engage with authoritative insights on shaping a sustainable energy future. Participants are encouraged to partake in a discourse that seeks to inspire actionable change and advance progress towards a more equitable and resilient energy landscape.
