Following a nearly 40-year career, Joseph H. Eto retired from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in 2021. He remains engaged with the Berkeley Lab through his collaboration with the Electricity Markets and Policy Department in the Energy Analysis and Environmental Impacts Division, and the Grid Integration Group in the Energy Storage and Demand Resources Division.
Mr. Eto has authored publications on electricity reliability, transmission planning and operations, demand response and distributed generation, utility integrated resource planning and demand-side management, and building energy-efficiency technologies.
Between 1999 and 2018, he led a consortium of national laboratories, universities, and private-sector partners to conduct public-interest research and analysis on electricity reliability and transmission technologies.
He has also supported the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on a variety of electricity reliability-related assignments, including the National Transmission Grid Study, the U.S.-Canada investigation of the August 14, 2003 blackout, and DOE’s National Electric Transmission Congestion Studies.
Mr. Eto received both an A.B. in Philosophy and an M.S. in Energy and Resources from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a registered professional Mechanical Engineer in the State of California.
