Logan has a wide range of technical expertise in energy storage and renewable energy which he has developed over the past decade of experience in industry and academia. He strives to leverage this experience, and an endless enthusiasm for education, to make renewable technology easier to understand, implement, and support.
Prior to joining Mana Pacific, Logan spent several years at Powin, a leading utility scale energy storage system integrator where he held multiple positions across product development, project management, and application engineering. During this time he designed and deployed over a gigawatt-hour of lithium-based energy storage projects across the world and built a keen eye for recognizing the intricacies of well designed products. Many of Logan’s projects involved the use of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in complex and challenging applications such as microgrids, remote locations, and advanced grid support functionalities such as fast frequency response. Logan has a deep desire to be hands on with the technology that he works with and spent much of his early career navigating the challenges of installing battery technology in remote environments such as South Africa and the Great Barrier Reef.
Logan also has an interest in the research, evaluation, and conscious application of emerging technologies. He has a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, has worked in several battery cell evaluation labs, and completed an Honors Thesis at the University of New South Wales on vanadium flow batteries.
The passion for renewable technology and energy storage that has driven Logan throughout his career stems from a deep connection with isolated communities and the natural environment that was cultivated during his youth in rural Alaska. In his free time he is an avid canoe and kayak paddler, cross-country skier, and outdoor enthusiast who enjoys exploring the worlds remaining remote wilderness.
