“The energy transition is a momentous challenge, requiring the best and brightest minds with diverse skills and backgrounds. This discussion will highlight a first-of-a-kind energy storage system developed by Malta, Inc. using molten salt technology as its energy storage medium. It is a long duration energy storage system that will enable the decarbonization of the electric sector globally. A fossil-free energy future requires technologies like Malta’s that provide synchronous and dependable energy when it’s needed, much like fossil plants do today. The Malta technology can enable coal repurposing and provide cities with district heating opportunities due to the natural heat extraction as part of its energy generating process. The Malta team is engineering this first-of-a-kind solution to provide the momentum necessary to enable the energy transition. Even so, the energy transition is not just about solving a technology or engineering challenge. To be successful we must address the political and regulatory barriers, the need for energy security, the need for affordable and accessible clean energy, the workforce, and the need to make substantial investments in green infrastructure. It will require a psychological shift and a continued commitment to advance the types of technologies and assets we will rely upon in the future. All of which is to say, it’s a human undertaking. My presentation will also highlight how the energy transition needs more than exceptional technology; it will require exceptional people with diverse backgrounds and skillsets. The energy transition needs everyone which is why your superpower matters.”

lyse joined Malta as project manager for the Malta Product Team in February 2021, managing projects and operations. Her projects focus on the design and development of Malta’s first-of-a-kind 100MW energy storage system, a bulk-scale long duration technology. Elyse manages an internal, multidisciplinary team of engineers, as well as external, global partners responsible for detailed engineering and major equipment delivery. Before Malta, Elyse spent nearly six years as a consultant and project manager for DNV, working with the investor-owned utilities and energy efficiency program administrators. During her consulting career, Elyse’s focus spanned oversight of large, multidisciplinary project teams to big data projects, inclusive of data management, data ingest, process and quality control as well as serving as the customer’s primary interface point. She received her master’s in economics and her bachelor’s in financial economics from the University of Maine. 

Elyse holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute and teaches part-time at Northeastern University for the project management master’s degree program.
