We are pleased to announce that our Saturday keynote speaker is Dr. Robin Podmore, President of Incremental Systems and IEEE Fellow. For more than 40 years, Dr. Robin Podmore has dedicated his career to the development of computer applications for power system operations and planning. As Co-chair of the IEEE PES Community Solutions Initiative, Dr. Podmore advocates a virtual community and a Sustainable Energy Reference Architecture so that open source electric generating solutions using solar, wind and human energy can be affordable to those earning one to two dollars a day. The title of Dr. Podmore's keynote talk will be: "The Community Solutions Initiative – Forming IEEE and EWB-USA partnerships for powering developing communities."
