Preparing for a Clean Energy Future
Andrew Phillips is Vice President of Transmission and Distribution Infrastructure at EPRI.
With the growth in electrification and renewable energy capacity, plus the increasing demands on power delivery infrastructure, the energy system is rapidly becoming more complex. EPRI, an independent, nonprofit energy research and development organization, owns and operates three world-class laboratories to evaluate new applications, technologies, and devices to conduct research across the energy spectrum, assisting stakeholders in addressing challenges and opportunities as part of the clean energy transition.
EPRI's labs are research and development facilities that go beyond standards testing to include designing new methodologies and evaluating evolving technologies. For example, in our transmission and distribution facilities, we can simulate an entire distribution system, and the systems and processes that exist from the distribution grid all the way to the end-use customer.
Our resources and expert staff are dedicated to evaluating ideas and breaking new ground to meet the needs of a clean energy transition that is evolving at a faster pace than ever before.
In addition to advanced lab capabilities, we also have specialized researchers who are at the top of their field.
