Smart Grid

Explore how a smart grid will connect renewable energy resources to our existing power grid and help us share that power more efficiently. By developing control systems that regulate electricity flow, a research group is making our power grid smarter. And a researcher designs, builds and tests a device that regulates and converts electricity from different renewable sources. Smart Grid will change where our power comes from and how we all use it.
