Power Systems and Markets Operations Expert
Managing Director, Energy and Information Logistics Group Limited (EiL)
Francis Masawi is an Electrical Power Systems and Markets Operations Expert specializing in Project / Program Management (PM) activities, developmental interventions / business operations and good governance whose short-term Outputs are high performance standards of energy accessibility, reliability, security, and affordability. The outputs of the PM activities are inputs into a Results-based Management (RBM) system whose medium-term Outcomes are inclusive and sustainable social and economic development and growth, with long-term Impacts of improvement in Quality of Life as measured by the achievement of all the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Francis acquired extensive knowledge and experience in Electrical Power Systems and Market Operations in eastern and southern African countries over a period of four decades. He has concluded that the Old Way of thinking, which focuses on self-interests, is the root cause of the acute and induced Energy Poverty on the African continent characterised by poor governance, low standards of operational and financial performance, high indebtedness, and insolvency of state-owned national utilities in the energy sector. He intends to implement the Sustainable Energy Supply Initiative (SESI) which he developed based on a New Way of thinking that promotes critical thinking, nurtures leadership, and embraces the flow of energy and information, the most critical ingredients for social and economic development and growth, from points of origin to the points of utilisation to meet the requirements of users, also known as Energy and Information Logistics (EiL). The New Way EPS clarifies the roles of the key processes of market operations and administration, power generation, transmission, distribution, and utilisation to support the sustainable production of goods and services society demand and can afford as the source of revenues for the markets and a measure of economic development and growth. The New Way view of EPSs is based on results of feasibility studies carried out in Uganda, Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, funded by the German government and that utilised an energy losses and associated CO2 reduction methodology approved by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Francis Masawi is a holder of an Honours Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe with particular focus in Electronics and Power Systems. He holds MBA certificates from Heriot Watt University in Economics and Organisational Behaviour.

This talk will present design and operation scenarios of resilient energy and transportation infrastructures. The talk will discuss development strategies of hybrid charging stations and their integration witihn energy and transportation infrastructures. The design and control strategies of fast charging stations will be presented with hybrid energy storage. Hardware-in-the-loop and real time simulation are used to evaluate the proposed design and implementation scenarios. Integrated nuclear-renewable hybrid energy systems using Small Modular Reactor (SMR) or Micro Modular Reactor (MMR) wihitn micro energy grids are used to achieve resilient energy supply within charging stations. Intergation betweeen hyrdogen and fuel cell systems are demonstrated to achieve hybrid charging stations and support the transition to clean transportation. Transactive mobility will be discussed to support the deployment of charging stations within energy and transportation infrastructures, as integrated with community applications in city, urban, and remote communities. Performance measures are modeled and evaluated for different design and operation strategies. Resiliency and performance measures will be discussed in view of number of operation and control strategies to meet user requirements.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has great potential to transform many aspects of health care – but despite this promise has only been implemented in a limited number of settings and in a limited way. This talk begins by discussing the potential of AI to transform health care in areas such as disease diagnosis and treatment, disease monitoring, patient monitoring and clinical outcome prediction, health care operations, and health care administration. We then outline the many reasons why this potential has not been realized. As a microcosm illustrating the state of AI applications, we describe a number of projects carried out at Lucile Packard Hospital Stanford. We conclude with thoughts about what is needed in order for AI to be successfully integrated into health care systems and the next steps that can be taken to advance implementation.
