Biography

Juliet Homer is team lead of the Energy Policy Analytics Team within the Energy Policy and Economics Group at PNNL. She is a professional engineer with expertise in the changing electric power grid and associated changes to planning, policy, and regulation. Juliet's work at PNNL centers on electric integrated distribution system planning with distributed energy resources. She also works on planning, operation, and governance issues associated with integrated water and power systems. Juliet also supports the distributed wind portfolio at PNNL. Juliet regularly works with state public utility commissions and state energy offices around the United States on issues of characterizing, valuing, and planning for distributed energy resources.

Before joining PNNL, Juliet worked as a utility analyst with the Oregon Public Utility Commission where she managed the review of electricity and natural gas utility resource planning dockets. She also performed economic analyses of utility-proposed energy efficiency, renewable energy and grid modernization investments. Juliet previously worked at Greeley and Hansen, LLC, a multi-national engineering consulting firm where she was a project engineer on water and wastewater planning and design projects in Arizona. Juliet holds a Master's Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Arizona State University.
