This edition’s Clean Energy Champion is Bharat Vyakaranam, an engineer working for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Bharat contributes to the Atlantic Offshore Wind Integration Study which focuses on the reliability and resilience of wind in the power system. When asked what his magical wind industry power is, his answer is “Integration and reliability,” two invaluable abilities in overcoming challenges of expanding offshore wind’s grid presence. For those seeking to enter the wind energy field, Bharat emphasizes a call to action based on research. 
“There is a lot more research to be done for wind energy, especially with offshore wind integration,” he advises. To reach 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, the wind industry needs all the research it can get!
