Eugene G. Preston's Resume (& clients)

Professional:
Where are we headed here in Texas with our long range resource planning efforts?
If you don't believe we need to be doing long range planning for transitioning off fossil fuels, read this AAAS statement.
What is the difference between ERCOT's LOLEV (loss of load event) and the LOLE (loss of load expectation) standards?
Note that an LOLE of 1 day (in 10 years) does not mean a 24 hour period but rather is the sum of daily probabilities summing to 0.1 for a test year.
