Michael is an analyst on the Decentralized Energy team at BloombergNEF. The team researches the changes to our energy system due to new technologies such as small-scale generation, battery storage and virtual power plants.
Michael focuses on how companies and utilities are adapting to a decentralized power system: the capabilities they are building and how their new business models will work. This work extends to understanding how markets and regulations can help integrate more distributed energy resources, such as electric-vehicle chargers, and ensure a cost-effective and efficient power system.
It is undeniable that the system and networks are becoming increasingly decentralised and will continue to do so. What are the main challenges faced by system operators and how can advanced analytics and AI be implemented to overcome them?
