Electric Power Research Institute Appoints Doug Esamann and Jeff Lyash as Interim Members of the Board of Directors

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has announced the appointments of Doug Esamann, executive vice president and president of Duke Energy's Midwest and Florida regions, and Jeff Lyash, president and chief executive officer of Ontario Power Generation (OPG), as interim members of the Board of Directors. Esamann will serve in an interim capacity until April 2017 and Lyash until April 2016, both will then be eligible for election to full four-year terms.

He assumed his current position in June 2015. Previously, he served as president of Duke Energy's Indiana operations. He was responsible for the company's regulatory, governmental relations, economic development and community affairs work in Indiana.

The Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. Receives $1.3 million Award for Solar PV Panel Research

The Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. announced that it has received a $1.3 million PREDICTS2 award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative to develop novel accelerated-aging protocols for photovoltaic (PV) modules. EPRI will lead the project, collaborating with Sandia National Laboratories, Southern Company and Southern Research (SR) to compare the performance of PV panels that have been operating for several years to that of new panels, ideally of the same make, model and vintage, that undergo accelerated aging in an environmental chamber. The testing will be conducted at the Southeastern Solar Research Center (SSRC), established last year by Southern Company, EPRI and SR on SR's campus in Birmingham, Ala. The three-year project will develop an algorithm for predicting panel performance degradation over time, work to advance module certification and degradation prediction and determine the potential levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) improvement as a result of applying these novel accelerated tests and protocols. The improved predictive models expected from this research could help lower the cost of PV energy through selection of modules with potentially higher power outputs over the PV system life, lowering financing costs and enabling development of PV projects.
