Aaron Snyder
Director of Grid Technology Consulting
Knoxville, TN

Dr. Aaron Snyder’s technical expertise includes advanced metering infrastructure requirements analysis, electricity metering, electricity metering standards (domestic and international), grid modernization, distribution system infrastructure resilience, and power system wide-area stability and control. Aaron has assisted utilities with developing and executing electricity metering test plans and procedures, particularly for the case of suspected failures, and including the supervision of vendor personnel performing the tests.

He has also assisted with specifying grid modernization equipment and enterprise applications and systems for developing requests for proposals, and then evaluating that same equipment and enterprise applications and systems against those specifications as part of advanced metering infrastructure, field area network, meter data management system, and advanced distribution system management system procurement activities.

For four years, Aaron was the deputy project manager for the EnerNex team contracted through NIST in support of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel, focusing his efforts on accelerating standards development and harmonization for metering, advanced metering infrastructure, and electric vehicles. He participates in standards development at the national and international levels for metering and utility application information exchange.
