UCLA MAE Professor Rajit Gadh was recently featured in the Washington Post, and on Spectrum News.

In the Washington Post article “California scrambles to avoid blackouts as it pursues a green energy future“, Prof. Gadh was quoted as follows:

Some energy scholars say California would have more than enough capacity if it harnessed its resources better. But outdated energy market rules make it tough for power providers to tap into all the potential resources.

“There is more power out there than we need to stabilize the grid on these few days a year it is under stress,” said Rajit Gadh, director of the Smart Gird Energy Research Center at UCLA. “We just need to get the control systems and the infrastructure in place, and give people incentives.”

On Spectrum News, Prof. Gadh was interviewed about “Fighting the extreme heat“.
