Dr. Y Leo Jiang-Engineering Seminar Speaker

New York State has enacted laws under the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) that set some of the most ambitious renewable and emission reduction targets across the country: achieving 70% renewable energy production by 2030 and a 100% zero-emissions electric sector by 2040. The fast installation of clear energy for grid decarbonization presents significant technical challenges from a power system design and operation perspective.
This presentation will talk about (1) the changing electricity landscape driven by the policy goals for electricity system decarbonization; (2) the impact of climate change on New York’s long-term base electricity load demand; and (3) long-term generation capacity expansion to predict the build and retirement of generation and storage assets as influenced by policy goals, load forecast scenarios, and other factors.

Bio: Dr. Leo Jiang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clarkson University. Prior to joining Clarkson, he was a Research Engineer at the GE Global Research Center from 2016 to 2020. At GE, Dr. Jiang led and participated in product design including distributed energy resource management system (DERMS), flexible large power transformer, and variable speed Pumped Storage Hydro technologies for grid integration of renewable energies. Dr. Jiang received the 2018 GE Dushman Technology Excellence Award for his contribution to differentiating GE products. Since joining Clarkson in 2020, Dr. Jiang has been focused on renewable grid integration, grid decarbonization and data analytics for power system applications. Dr. Jiang was an NSF CAREER Awardee and he earned his Ph.D. degree from Washington State University (WSU) in 2016.
