We are happy to introduce our newest member of the EMIRI Steering Committee. Omar Perego from RSE – Research on Energy System, was elected during our previous General Assembly that was held on May 18th and is now part of the Steering Committee.

According to him, “EMIRI is a great opportunity to join the most significant bodies involved in the formulation, definition, and production of advanced materials for energy. I’m delighted to be part of the team committed to boost the innovation in this matter”. Let’s get to know him a little bit better…

Omar Perego – born in 1974, graduated in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico of Milan (Italy). In RSE, he is a project manager of about 3 M€/y National funded project (since 2015), dealing with materials and technologies of storage systems (electrochemical, chemical, and thermal), covering the whole value chain. He participates to several European initiatives connected to energy storage development: expert in in Batteries Europe WG6 “Application & integration – stationary” and in ETIP-SNET WG2 “storage technologies and sector interfaces”, member of the stakeholder network EBA250 (European Battery Alliance) and in the Batteries European Partnership Association (BEPA), regional reference person in the Partnership on Advanced Materials for Batteries (AMBP). He is also expert in distributed energy systems, renewable energy sources and combined heat and power generation. He is member of the research committee in the Energy Technology National Cluster (CTNE), reference person in the area “Smart Energy System” of the Lombardy Energy Cleantech Cluster (LE2C). In the past, he was WP or task leader in several European projects (e.g. MAGNITUDE, DERlab, MORE-Microgrids, DISPOWER) and coordinator of the Research Infrastructure DERRI, all dealing with integration of distributed energy resources into the grid.

Welcome on board, Omar!
