Stina + Distributed Energy
Stina has been working with distributed energy resources for over 15 years. Early on, Stina specialized in research on distributed energy systems composed of renewable wind generation and hydrogen storage. Since then, she has spent time working with utilities and C&I customers, figuring out how to make demand response as impactful and reliable as possible. After working with load reduction and related technologies for 5 years, she turned her attention to energy storage. First, grid scale flow batteries, and more recently, lithium ion residential-sized systems. Overall, the goal has been to find a way to better manage the grid, to make it more flexible and capable, so that renewables can be more easily integrated. And, specifically, on how software can be used to facilitate this, regardless of the end device being controlled.
