Educating Power Engineers for a Future Distribution Grid
GridEd is a collaborative educational initiative seeking to develop and train the next generation of power engineers so they can help shape the grid of the future.
Announcement – Expanding the GridEd Program
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has been selected to receive a $6 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) which will enable the expansion of the GridEd program. The Grid-Ready Energy Analytics Training (GREAT) with Data initiative will address workforce skills in four key, emerging technical areas: (1) data science, including descriptive, prescriptive, and predictive analytics, and machine learning; (2) cyber security; (3) information and communication technologies, with an emphasis on interoperability and standardization technologies; and, (4) integration of solar photovoltaic and other distributed energy resources such as energy storage, electric vehicles, and demand response.
