Webinar Series Begins This Month: Issues in Designing the Future Grid

The Department has funded an effort at the Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) to investigate the requirements of an electric grid with high penetrations of sustainable energy systems and heavy reliance on cyber systems for sensing and communication. The goal of the effort is to stimulate discussion among the academic, industry, and government communities on what it will take to shape the future grid for the mid-21st Century. PSERC is offering a free, public webinar series beginning this month and running through May 2012 entitled “Issues in Designing the Future Grid.” The webinars will focus on the information hierarchy for the future grid and grid enablers of sustainable energy systems.
