RAEL Lunch — November 14, Sara Mulhauser, “Do utility ownership structures impact energy storage diffusion rates?”

Mulhauser Sara is an architect who delved into distributed generation while developing fuel cell projects for Bloom Energy. She became interested in the energy industry in general, and specifically the regulatory and finance conditions that make markets more open to uptake of innovative technologies. While her focus is in energy, she is also interested in how other major infrastructure areas are similar and different with respect to technology uptake. Sara has a BA in Architecture from Berkeley.

Strathmore-​​UC Berkeley Energy Access Workshop … and some wildlife safari time.

The Strathmore Energy Research Center (SERC) and the University of California, Berkeley held a joint workshop on energy research, governance, and the role of the private sector in building an inclusive clean energy economy.  This joint activity was supported by both Strathmore University and a National Science Foundation Cyber-Physical Systems Program grant to Professors Callaway and Kammen. The slides from Professor Kammen's talk are here. IMG_0946 The SWITCH-Kenya model of the Kenyan power grid is available here. Isa Ferrall and Duncan Callaway also spoke at the event. IMG_0948 Before the workshop, the RAEL team spent time Mpala Research Centre looking at high-voltage transmission projects and the wildlife.  A few images are below.
