Kevin Lynn works for the Department of Energy as the Director of Grid Modernization within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. In that position, he coordinates all activities focused on resolving the technical challenges that limit the integration of renewable electricity generation technologies, electric vehicles, demand response, and other technologies into the grid in a safe, reliable, and cost effective manner. On behalf of DOE, Kevin also serves as the steward for the Advanced Research on Integrated Energy Systems (ARIES) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. ARIES is a unique research and development platform designed to provide insight into the design and operation of future energy systems at scale. This includes testing new technologies at scale of up to 20 MW in size and understanding how energy technologies across diverse infrastructures can coordinate and work together. Previously, Kevin led the Systems Integration team as a Program Manager under the SunShot Initiative, a DOE initiative that enabled the widespread adoption of solar energy.
