About

Dr. Daniel Burillo provides professional scientific services to governments and electricity companies to address their energy and environmental challenges. He is a published author on advanced computational methods for long-term infrastructure planning, including distributed energy resources (DER - solar PV, storage, and EVs), energy efficiency standards, outage prediction, and cascading failures. His work has made several advancements in public knowledge of heat waves, how electricity infrastructure systems are vulnerable to heat waves, and how knowledge of these factors can be used to improve systems’ stability, lower costs to ratepayers, strategically site DER, and reduce hazardous emissions.

Dr. Burillo is currently working to integrate these advanced data science techniques into appropriate systems across the State of California such that we can overcome the next stage of Cleantech implementation challenges associated with the "Duck Curve," and demonstrate how energy transitions can be done effectively at the largest scales.

Dr. Burillo holds a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Arizona, an MS in civil and environmental engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and a PhD in civil, environmental and sustainable engineering from Arizona State University.
