Sustainable Grid Integration of Distributed and Renewable Resources

Project Goals

The goal is to revolutionize the way energy is produced, used, stored, and traded, consistent with economic, environmental, social, and security objectives. The UT faculty team will be engaged in collaborative research in cybersecurity, network management computation, distributed generation (solar, wind, fuel cells), power electronics and controls, energy storage (batteries, flywheels, compressed air, thermal storage, electric vehicles), energy efficient buildings, efficient appliances, and sensors for system performance and optimization. We have assembled an interdisciplinary team with 20 faculty from the Departments of Electrical and Computer, Mechanical, Civil/Architectural, and Chemical Engineering; McCombs School of Business; School of Law; and School of Architecture.
