Innovative employee research earns awards

Four Great River Energy employees recently received awards for their achievements in applying Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) research to produce significant results.

Presented annually, EPRI’s Technology Transfer Awards recognize industry leaders and innovators who help companies transform research into results and solutions that improve the efficiency of power plants, harden transmission and distribution equipment, improve cybersecurity and enhance end-use electrification — all for the benefit of utility customers.

Adam Salzer, regulatory compliance specialist, was recognized in the generation field for his accurate assessment of nitrogen dioxide and nitrogen oxide at fossil fuel power plants.

Mark Strohfus, transmission permitting project manager, won an award for his work on a carbon dioxide emission rate metrics calculator.

Senior Engineer Rick Jeanson and Jim McGuire, manager, transmission line engineering, won an award in power delivery for their risk-based assessment of climate conditions for improved seasonal, regional and dynamic transmission line ratings.

EPRI conducts research and development relating to the generation, delivery and use of electricity for the benefit of the public. As an independent, nonprofit organization, EPRI brings together its scientists and engineers, as well as experts from academia and industry, to help address challenges in electricity, including reliability, efficiency, affordability, health, safety and the environment.
