The Galvin Electricity Initiative lead a campaign to transform our nation’s power system into one that truly meets our needs for reliable, efficient, clean electricity service. The imperfect quality of power service today robs each American household of thousands of dollars a year, and the transformation of service quality to 21st century digital standards is critical to resolving the serious economic and environmental threats facing our nation. The Initiative resolved these threats by shifting to a new industry paradigm that is consumer-centric and driven by entrepreneurial innovation and smart technology.
In 2012, The Galvin Electricity Initiative culminated in the Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal (PEER), the dricing force behind the vision to transform the way power systems are regulated, designed and operated. PEER provides a learning system to help energy stakeholders build the capacity to innovate and drive system transformation.
American Home Electrical Safety Project
According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 30,000 non-fatal electrical shock cases reported in the United States each year. Among these, about 70% occur in residential settings. Hence, an estimated 21,000 electrical shock incidents take place in American households annually. Addressing this concern, in 2020, we initiated a project named “American Home Electrical Safety.” This project involves the creation and dissemination of informative materials aimed at guiding peoples on proper electrical usage, maintenance, and optimizing energy consumption.
Robert W. Galvin
(Founder and Chairman, Galvin Electricity Initiative
Retired CEO and Chairman, Motorola, Inc.)
Bob Galvin retired as chairman of the board of Motorola, Inc. in 1990 after more than 30 years of corporate leadership and innovation. In 2004, he launched the Galvin Electricity Initiative to bring his visionary approach to the faltering electric power system.
Kurt E. Yeager
Kurt E.Yeager joined the Galvin Electricity Initiative, an effort to perfect the electric power system, shortly after it was launched by former Motorola chief Bob Galvin in 2005. As the Initiative’s Vice Chairman, Yeager continues to work with electricity experts, innovators and entrepreneurs to design and build Perfect Power System models of a smart, efficient electric power system that cannot fail the consumer. He also works to drive the electricity policy changes necessary for system transformation at the state and federal levels.
As Executive Director of the Galvin Electricity Initiative, John Kelly is leading research into improved electricity governance models and the development of innovative Perfect Power prototypes. These prototypes are being designed to serve as a test bed where innovative technologies and polices can be refined.
Greg Rouse has over 25 years of experience in the energy industry and has been involved with the Initiative since 2007. Through his work with the Initiative, Rouse develops Perfect Power System designs, such as the Perfect Power at IIT design and provides strategic planning, project management, and policy research for Initiative campaigns and efforts.
