Lorenzo Kristov

California ISO

Dr. Lorenzo Kristov is a Principal in Market and Infrastructure Policy at the California Independent System Operator (ISO), the company that runs California’s electric transmission grid and wholesale markets. His primary focus at present is to facilitate the transformation of the electric system from a centrally-controlled, fossil-fueled industry to a decentralized, renewable-based structure, comprised of community-level microgrids that are customized to meet local needs, integrate electric service with essential municipal services, and provide resilience to system disruptions. In his 17 years at the ISO he has led numerous complex stakeholder initiatives, including comprehensive redesign of California's power markets and enhancements to integrate renewable and distributed generating resources.
