Director, Grid Modernization, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office, U.S. Department of Energy

Kevin Lynn works for the Department of Energy as the Director of Grid Modernization within the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy office. In that position, he coordinates all cross-organizational activities focused on resolving the technical, market, and regulatory 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. Kevin also co-leads the Grid Modernization Initiative which coordinates efforts across the Department and the national laboratories to develop the tools and technologies needed to measure, analyze, predict, protect, and control the grid of the future. Previously he worked for the Department of Energy as part of the SunShot Initiative, a national initiative to enable the widespread adoption of solar energy. There he was the Program Manager of the Systems Integration team supporting research in grid integration, PV system performance and reliability, and balance of system hardware. During that time, he developed funding opportunities in grid integration, balance of system hardware, plug and play technologies, and solar forecasting.
