Carnegie Mellon gets $1M in federal energy project funds

Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh) is one of  six projects selected by the Department of Energy to share in its Grid Modernization Initiative to improve the resiliency, reliability and security of the nation’s electrical power grid.

DOE announced $18 million in funding for six new projects across the United States. These projects will enable the development and demonstration of integrated, scalable, and cost-effective solar technologies that incorporate energy storage to power American homes after the sun sets or when clouds are overhead.

The university will receive $1 million to develop and demonstrate a distributed, agent-based control system to integrate smart inverters, energy storage, and commercial off-the-shelf home automation controllers and smart thermostats.
