Michael Carlson, President, Digital Grid North America, Siemens

In this edition of the AEG Podcast, Michael Carlson - President, Digital Grid North America, Siemens - joins Grant van Wyngaarden for a conversation on grid digitization, prosumers, and technology innovation in the energy industry.

Mike Carlson was a Discussion Leader at the Q2 2018 Washington Advanced Energy Stakeholder Breakfast on the topic of Smart Buildings and Grid Modernization.  Mike's role at the event was pivotal considering the importance of grid modernization, especially as Washington DC pursues the MEDSIS initiative (Modernizing the Energy Delivery System for Increased Sustainability).

In this podcast, Mike discusses the benefits of grid digitization and the most available means to achieve progress today. Mike also shares his thoughts on the transition to a "prosumer-centric energy world", through greater adoption of distributed generation, storage, and virtual generation through demand response. Finally, Mike reflects on his experience as a Discussion Leader at the Advanced Energy Group Q3 2018 Stakeholder Breakfast.
