Aaron’s technical expertise includes advanced metering infrastructure requirements analysis, electricity metering, electricity metering standards (domestic and international), demand response, and power system wide-area stability and control. Aaron has assisted utilities with developing and executing electricity metering test plans and procedures, particularly for the case of suspected failures, and including the supervision of vendor personnel performing the tests. He has also assisted with developing requests for proposals (RFPs) and evaluating proposals against those RFPs as part of AMI procurement activities. Aaron worked with vendors and utilities to develop and implement an AMI test bed focused on communications networking performance and interoperability. Aaron was the deputy project manager for the EnerNex team contracted through NIST in support of the Smart Grid interoperability standards development and harmonization project. His primary technical role in the project was standards acceleration and development, particularly standards relating to electricity metering and related information exchange.
