    Dr. Peter Lilienthal will discuss how the HOMER software tool works and use it to illustrate some examples of what microgrids look like both on- and off-grid. There will also be additional discussion about what it has taken to license software out of NREL and grow a business around it, as well as Dr. Lilienthal's view of the role of distributed power and microgrids in the evolving utility industry.

    Dr. Peter Lilienthal is the CEO of HOMER Energy. Since 1993, he has been the developer of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's HOMER® hybrid power optimization software, which has been used by over 160,000 energy practitioners in 193 countries. NREL has licensed HOMER Energy to be the sole world-wide commercialization licensee to distribute and enhance the HOMER model.

    Dr. Lilienthal was the Senior Economist with International Programs at NREL from 1990 – 2007. He was the lead analyst and one of the creators of NREL’s Village Power Programs. He has a Ph.D. in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University. He has been active in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency since 1978. This has included designing and teaching courses at the university level, project development of independent power projects, and consulting to industry and regulators. His expertise is in the economic and financial analysis of renewable and micro-grid projects.
