Grid Modernization Evangelist
You’ll find our industry evangelist Terry Oliver at our events and across the marketplace, helping to spread the word and expand our networks and resources. He has worked globally to advance energy sustainability including conservation and renewable energy and electric utility industry R&D, including long tenures at the International Institute for Energy Conservation and as Bonneville Power Administration’s first Chief Technology Innovation Officer, where he was one of the early visionaries of the smart grid and Transactive Energy. He is a past member of EPRI’s Research Advisory Committee, the EPRI Board of Directors, the Oregon Institute of Technology Renewable Energy Engineering Industry Advisory Committee, the Carnegie Mellon University Electric Industry Center Advisory Committee, and was Vice Chair of the Board of the GridWise Alliance. In 2010, GreenTech Media named him one of The Networked Grid 100: Movers and Shakers of the Smart Grid. He’s enjoying his pseudo-retirement spreading the word about grid modernization in the region and beyond as well as pursuing photography around the globe. Today, Terry has a full-blown photo habit (see some of his recent work below).
