LBNL and Department of Energy to Host Webinar on DC-Power

Wed, 11/02/2011 - 12:20pm

Lawrence Berkeley National laboratory (LBNL) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) will host "Direct-DC Power Systems for Efficiency and Renewable Energy Integration," an on-line meeting Thursday, November 3rd from 1:00 to 3:00 pm Eastern time. Speakers will include, Chris Marnay, Staff Scientist with LBNL, Vagelis Vossos, Senior Research Associate with LBNL and Paul H. Savage, CEO of Nextek Power Systems and EMerge Alliance Co-Founder.

To be chaired by Karina Garbesi, Professor with California State University, East Bay, this webinar will examine the viability of using direct current (DC) generated by on-site renewable energy (RE) systems directly in its DC form to supply DC loads in residential and small commercial buildings – referred to here as ’direct-DC’– instead of converting the DC to alternating current (AC) for distribution to the load, as is the current dominant practice.
