"Kaspar has been a leader in the European Utility and DSO sector for the last 10 years. As a speaker, technology strategist and complex problem solver he has been very active not only in his native Estonia, where he was serving as CTO of Elektrilevi - Estonia's largest DSO, but across Europe.
Holding the position of CTO was a natural progression given his previous positions and duties inside Elektrilevi.

He helped build the Digital Network Technology department as an interdisciplinary energy systems engineering and operations workshop.
He has a M.Sc in Engineering Physics from Tallinn University of Technology. In previous roles of substation automation specialist and smart grid project manager, he worked on leading foundational smart grid projects, such as Elektrilevi's all-IP program, dynamic analytics for integrating renewables and on implementing OT asset management software. He was one of the creators of Elektrilevi's Strategic Cybersecurity Program and the Advanced Analytics Program - which is tasked with unlocking the full business value from Elektrilevi's smart meter roll-out about to be completed."
