In this month’s episode, EPSA President and CEO Todd Snitchler sits down with Jake Loosararian, founder of Gecko Robotics, to discuss ways in which new technology can strengthen reliability and improve cost in the electric grid. Featured in Forbes Magazine as well as Hive Ventures’ 30 Under 30, Loosararian has received critical acclaim for what started as a college project and has since then played a key hand in revolutionizing infrastructure technology.
Loosararian’s invention – small, gecko-like wall-climbing robots – collect critical data, helping mitigate the dangerous conditions power plant workers face as well as garnering information millions of times more efficiently than a human can. Gecko Robotics’ technology can help protect critical infrastructure in power plants and refineries nationwide, helping maintain reliability and affordability through a changing grid.
