IEEE Green Tech Consensus Building — Smart Grid, Energy Efficiency and Communication Standards Meeting Renewable Energy Goals

Bill Ash (left) is the Strategic Technology Program Director for IEEE-SA. He received his BSEE from Rutgers University School of the Engineering. His background is in the RF industry as he worked as applications engineer on wireless communications systems. Bill has been with the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) for over 12 years working with standards development groups covering technologies such as RF emissions, distributive generation and the National Electrical Safety Code®. He is currently leading the eHealth, smart grid, and smart cities initiatives for the IEEE-SA.
Srikanth Chandrasekaran (Sri) is the Director Standards and Technology, associated with the IEEE India office for the past 4 years with focus on key emerging technologies including IoT, Sensors, Smart Cities, Big Data, Sensors, Smart Grid, and e-Health. Sri also has a specific focus on standardization initiatives in India to engage the local technical community to the global IEEE standards development efforts. Prior to joining IEEE, Sri was associated with Freescale Semiconductor Inc. (formerly Motorola Inc.) for 18 years, managing a global team focused on development of software tools and technologies in the area of Electronic Design Automation. Sri holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Madras University, India and a Master of Engineering degree in electrical communication from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.
Around the world, there is a growing push for renewable energy solutions that can establish a more sustainable and eco-friendly means to meet increasing demands for energy. What’s more, building energy management systems that can leverage renewable energy sources and lead to smarter, cleaner energy consumption is a goal being pursued in many countries throughout the world—one that also holds the promise of establishing a baseline for supplying power in developing countries currently looking for achievable energy solutions.
