Resilient Entanglement’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Rozhin Eskandarpour, recently spoke with members of the IEEE about the potential for quantum computing to transform the world’s power grid and help nations reach greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.
The unprecedented transformation of the electric power grid, driven primarily by the proliferation of distributed renewable energy resources and the increasing frequency and intensity of natural disasters due to climate change, necessitates new sets of analytics and computing practices.
The 2022 IEEE Quantum Week panel on quantum computing opportunities in climate change brought together subject matter experts from three perspectives on how quantum technology can support building a climate-resilient grid of the future: Rima Kasia Oueid (U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) discussed Policy & Commercialization Solutions, Rozhin Eskandarpour, (Ph.D.) (Resilient Entanglement) elaborated on Technology Implementation, and Amin Khodaei (University of Denver) provided use cases with proven practical applications.
Thanks to Ali Arabnya (University of Denver) for making this panel productive and engaging.
Dr. Eskandarpour said, “I was thrilled to be a part of this thought-provoking panel along with pioneers Rima Kasia Oueid, Senior Commercialization Executive at the U.S. Department of Energy, and Amin Khodaei, Professor at the University of Denver. I’m looking forward to continuing our journey toward a climate-resilient grid.”
RE would also like to extend a warm thank you to Zhenyu (Henry) Huang and Annarita Giani of the IEEE for organizing this important and timely workshop.
