From modernizing the electric grid with smart meters to replacing aging grids with energy storage and microgrids, Andy stands at the bleeding edge of the digital energy frontier.
As vice president of energy storage and optimization for Wärtsilä’s global Energy Business, he works directly with utilities and power producers to accelerate the shift toward a 100% renewable energy future.
