 Energetic Insurance, Inc.Jeffrey McAulay Small Business Power Generation: Renewable Energetic Insurance specializes in the creation of novel risk management products for the renewable energy industry. Our flagship product (EneRate Credit Cover) provides a backstop for offtaker credit risk in on-site solar transactions.

In the creation and launch of this product we developed our own actuarial models, proprietary software tools, data sets and underwriting guidelines that were then approved by the the 5th largest reinsurer in the world.

We are interested in collaborating with other teams to create new insurance products that may not have traditional loss histories. We are open to financial as well as physical risks.

We are a venture-backed company with previous support from the DOE and various state level agencies.

 University of HoustonXingpeng Li Academic Grid My main expertise includes power system operations, modeling, algorithm development, and optimization, day-ahead scheduling, real-time dispatching, energy management system (EMS), contingency analysis, unit commitment, economic dispatch, transmission switching, network configuration, and operations research. I have both academic and industrial experience. I previously worked for ISO-NE, PJM, and ABB.

My research interests are threefold:
(1) Smart grid: renewable generation, energy storage, distributed energy resource, and demand response; microgrid sizing and energy management.
(2) Power system operations, planning and optimization; flexible transmission, power flow control; power system reliability and resilience; power system cyber-security: cyber-attack and countermeasures; applications of big data in power systems.
(3) Interoperability of multiple infrastructure systems: electricity, natural gas, and water.

 Arizona State UniversityJunshan Zhang Academic Power Generation: Renewable To meet the grand challenge of a sustainable energy future, there has been a surge of interest in renewable energy and demand response products. The high penetration of renewable resources, together with the presence of a large number of demand response products, introduces difficult-to-control dynamics and risks for power system operation. Decision support tools are necessary to efficiently utilize renewable resources and distributed demand response products in concert with traditional grid resources.

Our team has been working on renewable generation modeling and forecast, as well as its bulk integration, for more than 10 years.
Specifically, we have studied modeling/forecast of clean energy, network optimization and control, grid integration of renewable energy and demand response. We also have expertise in cloud and edge computing, Internet of Things (IoT) platform design, and data-driven optimization. As a strong believer of energy efficiency, I have actively taken leadership roles to pursue collaborative
projects and develop integrated solutions. In collaboration with Sandia National Lab,
Nexant Inc., and PJM, I am currently leading a large-scale ARPA-e project, with focus on developing the
stochastic optimal power flow (OPF) tool for real-time management of distributed renewable generation and demand response.
