NEC Laboratories Funding Supports Microgrids Research (LBNL*)

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

NEC Laboratories America, Inc. has provided Michael Stadler of the Grid Integration Group a gift in the amount of $60,000 to support his research in microgrids and energy storage.

Previous gifts from NEC have supported research resulting in a publication titled “Electric Storage in California’s Commercial Buildings,” LBNL-6071E. The research examines whether buildings could serve as the hub for electric vehicles and serve as a resource in a building energy management system (EMS) for demand response or strategies that reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This research was also funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability.
