In this episode of Grid Talk, host Marty Rosenberg talks with Arshad Mansoor of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Mr. Mansoor is the President at EPRI and will take over as CEO on January 1, 2021. The podcast focuses on EPRI's research efforts to address the challenges of delivering reliable and affordable electricity, including coming up with a pathway to accelerate the transition to clean energy. 

"We need to rethink, what is the design basis of this power system to be more resilient in 2040 when A) the weather is different, and B) because of electrification, society
depends more on electricity, " said Mansoor.

He'll also talk about rethinking the power system by advancing new technologies and making them widely available to the utility industry.

"We’ll have to move faster as an industry and we’ll have to move faster as a research arm."

Mr. Mansoor joined EPRI in 2006 as Vice President for Power Delivery and has since held numerous leadership positions throughout EPRI. Immediately prior to his current role, he served as Senior Vice President of Research and Development, overseeing a broad-based EPRI research portfolio enhancing global electricity generation, delivery, and use around the world.

Mansoor earned a doctoral degree in electrical engineering from the University of Texas in Austin. He also completed the Harvard Advanced Management Program and the MIT Reactor Technology Course.
