Recent Work

August 2021 – Invited keynote presentation: MIT A+B Symposium, “How many years of data is enough? Using multiple years of data to increase electricity system performance”. (recording)

December 2020 – Organized and co-chaired session at AGU 2020, “Near-zero emissions energy systems: geophysical opportunities, constraints,
and consequences”

May 2020 – “Usable electricity usage data for the United States”, blog post accompanying publication of data cleaning article. (post/article)

December 2019 – American Geophysical Union Conference, 2019 (AGU2019), San Francisco, CA: presented an analysis-in-progress exploring the relationship between interannual variability in electricity demand and wind and solar resource availability. This variability was related to potential grid reliability and safety margins used in capacity markets. (additional details/poster)

September 2019 – NREL OpenMod workshop, Golden, CO: presented a lightening talk on a data cleaning effort to make EIA hourly electricity demand data easily usable in energy models. See this blog post for additional details.
