Jon La Follett leads the Energy System Integration & Storage (ESIS) research team in the Shell New Energies Research & Technology department. The ESIS team focuses on integration technologies that enable system components like solar, batteries, flexible loads such as EVs, and conventional generators to provide services to the power grid and value to the component owners. He led the Shell Technology Center Houston Microgrid project from design through construction and operation – now a key experimental test facility for the ESIS team. He has been solving real world problems with science and technology since 2010 and holds BS degrees in Physics and Computational Physics from Oregon State University, and MS and PhD degrees in Physics from Washington State University.
