Mike is the global sector leader for our grid modernization services. He has over 30 years of experience with industrial and power clients, having worked with equipment suppliers, manufacturers, and system integrators.
In the last eight years, Mike has supported the rehabilitation of Ontario’s electricity system through over a gigawatt of solar photovoltaics in addition to nearly 50 megawatts of energy storage projects. He’s also leading a project to deploy a commercial microgrid for a research park near the University of Waterloo which should catalyze mass deployments of community microgrids globally.
In addition to management and oversight of solar programs for owners like Samsung Renewable Energy, Canadian Solar, Algonquin Power, and Penn Energy Renewables, Mike has also managed transmission and distribution projects for Hydro One, Toronto Hydro, Alectra Utilities, Energy+, Guelph Hydro, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro, Enwin Utilities, and Entegrus Powerlines (to name a few).
These services have now extended to mass adoption of distributed energy resources (DER) and a rollout of grid modernization projects involving microgrids, energy storage, and electric vehicle (EV) charging. Mike is currently leading the engineering and permitting team responsible for the rollout of Tesla’s Supercharger network across Canada at over 50 locations.
