Lancium Compute President Andrew Grimshaw, Ph.D. to Speak at Austin Forum on Technology & Society Event

Lancium, Inc, an energy infrastructure and technology company, is pleased to partner with the Austin Forum on Technology & Society for their June presentation and share how advanced computing can play a transformational role in advancing a move to a sustainable, low-carbon future.  Lancium Compute uses the company’s flexible data centers paired with proprietary software to turn high-performance computing jobs into a resource for the electric grid – that provides increased grid stability and encourages the growth of more renewable energy. 

During this presentation, Dr. Grimshaw will discuss the basics of how the electrical grid works and how bitcoin mining and high-performance computing can be used as a variable and controllable load, and illustrate how Lancium’s Clean Campus data centers, when enabled by Lancium’s Smart Response™ technology, can turn high-performance computing jobs into a resource that enhances the stability of the electric power grid and encourages the growth of more renewable energy and making renewable energy generation more profitable and efficient.

Dr. Grimshaw received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois in 1988 and joined the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia. In his 34-year career at Virginia, Grimshaw focused on the challenges of designing, building, and deploying solutions that meet user requirements on production supercomputing systems such as those operated by the United States Department of Defense, Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and NASA. Dr. Grimshaw retired this year from the University of Virginia to join Lancium and participate in their transformative mission to change how and where computing is done while decarbonizing the electrical grid.

The event will be held on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 6 p.m. at the Austin Central Library. To learn more about the event or to register, please visit:
