EDF Energy Services sponsors ETS Originals short film

EDF Energy Services sponsored the ETS Originals short film, 77 Problems which premiered at the recent ETS START conference in Austin, TX.  The film follows Dr. Massoud Amin, University of Minnesota professor and IEEE Smart Grid Chairman, across New York City as he recounts the day that not only shaped his resolute career, but also the energy industry - the 25-hour blackout July 13, 1997. 

“EDF is championing how to make systems more robust,” said Brelinsky at the panel held before the premiere of the film.  “We need more demand resources and renewables and less mass on the grid—we need these safety nets and precautions more than ever.”

EDF Energy Services currently manages two nuclear plants, wind farms and retail electricity services in New York.
