Adam Rousselle Sr.



Adam Rousselle is a senior executive in the bulk electric transmission sector and a recognized leader in advanced remote sensing technologies for the energy industry.  Since 1995 Mr. Mr. Rousselle has pioneered the use of applied remote sensing in the timber and energy industries. He is the principle inventor of 7 US Patents and more than 32 international patents.

In 1998, Mr. Rousselle partnered with the NASA to develop remote sensing technologies that provided asset inventory solutions for owners, investors, and insurers of forestland around the globe.

In 2005, he founded Utility Risk Management Corporation to bring deliberative intelligence and data-driven decision-making processes to create facility ratings and improve vegetation management for the Bulk Electric Transmission system.

In 2012, after surveying more than 50,000 circuit miles of the nation’s bulk electric transmission system, Mr. Rousselle invented new technologies to locate incrementally available transmission capacity. By 2013 he identified the relationship between incremental transmission capacity and the long-term financial rights associated with such improvements in transmission capacity.

Today, Mr. Rousselle’s focus is on co-locating intermittent renewable with pump-storage hydroelectric generation to provide a firm, baseload supply of completely renewable generation.

Mr. Rousselle is a decorated combat-disabled Army veteran after serving with the 7th Special Forces Group and the 1st Squadron 7th Cavalry where he was awarded the Bronze Star for his actions.
