Mike George is an engineer in the electric power industry, with 10+ years of applied experience working on the North American electrical grid.
Mike earned his Master of Engineering degree in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in 2012, after completing in 2009 his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering & Business from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. A member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) since 2005, his expertise covers bulk power conversion, high-voltage AC and DC transmission, substation design, reactive power compensation, integrating distributed energy resources, energy storage devices (e.g. batteries, synchronous condensers), and electricity markets.
It is Mike's mission to leverage the capabilities, efficiencies, and reliability of the electric power system in order to foster development of sustainable interconnected transport systems alongside a sustainable interconnected electric power system. He is pursuing a career based not only in science and engineering research, but one that transcends into management, politics, and education.
Mike was born and raised in the Appalachian city of Steubenville, Ohio, educated in Dayton and Montreal, and has also lived in Columbus and Portland. Mike presently resides in Portland, Oregon.
