Biography

Andrew Keane is Head of the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Head of the Energy Institute at University College Dublin. Andrew leads the Energy Institute with responsibility for its Scientific and Engineering strategy delivering the Institute's continued growth and success.

Andrew's research interests include the impact of new energy resources on the power system from the residential network up to the high voltage transmission system. Current research topics focus upon the impact of renewable and distributed energy resources on the network, in particular in the context of the smart grid.  

Previously, he has worked with ESB Networks in the areas of renewable generation planning and smart networks and
as a Senior Engineer with Smarter Grid Solutions in Glasgow. In 2014 he co-founded a UCD spin out, NovoGrid. NovoGrid are a new electrical grid automation company delivering control solutions which enable renewable generators to increase their energy output.
 
He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and past chair of the IEEE Power and Energy Society UK and Ireland Chapter. He has published over 90 peer reviewed publications, including over 40 papers in leading journals in his field.
