Roger Fualkner

Super Grid Coordinator 

Roger Faulkner is the founder of Electric Pipeline Corporation "EPC" (www.elpipe.com), which was formed in 2009 to pursue his invention "elpipes," which are polymer insulated, mobile, repairable high capacity underground HVDC power lines, installed inside a gas pipeline conduit. He is a polymer scientist who studied at Akron University. His Ph.D. research was on one of his inventions, reaction wave polymerization, and most of his 30 year career since then  has had to do with pursuing and developing this and other inventions, not all in the area of polymer science. He has a long term interest in enabling technologies for renewable energy, including elpipes and a spin-out invention from EPC, Ballistic Breakers (a low cost HVDC circuit breaker). He has had a strong interest in energy policy issues for many years, and was a full party and public intervenor in the Wisconsin PSC’s Advance Plan 6 hearings in 1991, where he first introduced the concept of elpipes in testimony he presented with Professor Willis (Bill) Long of UW-Madison, a leading expert in HVDC power transmission. He also ran for the US Senate in the 1992 Republican Primary in Wisconsin, calling himself a "Green Republican," in an effort to introduce new thinking around environmental and resource policy issues (he got 20% of the votes in that election, which he entered as a complete unknown).
