Father of the Smart Grid: Dr. Massoud Amin Recognized as "Thought Leader of the Year"

IEEE Smart Grid News - Tue, 03/17/2015 - 13:06

Date: March 18, 2015

In a recent announcement by the Energy Thought Summit (ETS), University of Minnesota Professor and IEEE Smart Grid Chair Dr. Massoud Amin received the "Thought Leader of the Year" award. As a first-of-its-kind endowment, the "Thought Leader of the Year" award recognizes "an individual with an inventive, brave vision to inspire the global energy ecosystem," according to ETS. Dr. Amin was selected by a committee of his peers and colleagues from around the world--all who have also made significant contributions to the energy industry.

"I'm humbled and honored by this recognition," Dr. Amin said regarding the award. In addition to his professorship with the University of Minnesota and position with IEEE Smart Grid, Dr. Amin is also the director of the Technological Leadership Institute and Honeywell/H.W. Sweatt Chair in Technological Leadership.

Dr. Amin is known as the "father of the smart grid" because of his teachings and work on power grid theory and research throughout the past three decades. A long list of his accomplishments includes high-ranking involvement with the IEEE, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Texas Reliability Entity, and Midwest Reliability Organization. Most notably, Dr. Amin's expert knowledge on grid security has led to a recent interview on NPR and many other notable media outlets. He has also advised the White House, governors and other agencies on matters related to cyber security.

The award will be presented during the 2015 Energy Thought Summit (ETS15), which is being held March 25-26, 2015 in Austin, Texas. During ETS15, Dr. Amin plans to deliver the "2020 Outlook" and will participate in a panel discussion.
