Biography

Jeff Dagle joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in 1989 and currently manages several projects in the areas of transmission reliability and control system security for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and other clients.

Recent project highlights include leading the North American SynchroPhasor Initiative (NASPI); serving on the leadership team of the Department of Energy's Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium; leading the team providing cyber security reviews for the DOE Smart Grid Investment Grants and Smart Grid Demonstration Projects associated with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009; and co-leading the PNNL Future Power Grid Initiative from 2010 to 2015. In 2014, Mr. Dagle was invited to serve on a National Academy committee to provide recommendations for the analytical research foundations for the next generation electric grid.

Other career accomplishments include leading the data requests and management task for the U.S.-Canada Power System Outage Task Force investigation of the August 14, 2003 blackout; supporting the DOE Infrastructure Security and Energy Restoration Division with on-site assessments in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina in 2005; and serving as a member of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) study group that formed in 2010 to establish critical infrastructure resilience goals.

Mr. Dagle is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). He received the 2001 Tri-City Engineer of the Year award by the Washington Society of Professional Engineers, and is a registered professional engineer in the State of Washington. He is the recipient of several patents, a Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) Award in 2007, and an R&D 100 Award in 2008 for the Grid Friendly™ Appliance Controller technology.
