Sustainable Integrated Grid Initiative

Breadcrumb

Integrating Solar Electricity Generation, Smart Distribution, Commercial-scale Energy Storage, and Electric Transportation

The Sustainable Integrated Grid Initiative was developed specifically to research and implement systems that demonstrate the successful integration of intermittent renewable energy, energy storage, and all types of electric and hybrid electric vehicles. Now in its fourth year of operation, the research testbed continues to assist researchers in analyzing the operations of microgrid systems under different conditions and for different installation types using a highly reconfigurable system consisting of interchangeable technology prototypes and an open source energy management platform.

The testbed is ideally suited for the researching and testing of different strategies and technologies in the real world, from building to neighborhood scale applications.  To learn more, visit our Sustainable Integrated Grid Initiative Research page.
