Origin

DC Opportunities was founded by Dr. Laurens Mackay in order to further develop technology and applications for DC microgrids and DC distribution grids.

He did his Bachelor and Master in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. In his master’s thesis, back in 2012, he started to work on DC distribution grids. He continued his research in that field at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands where he obtained his PhD degree in 2018.
