The Center for Grid Engineering Education

In this Section

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.

GridEd is consisting of the Electric Power Research Institute, four universities (Georgia Technological Institute, University North Carolina Charlotte, Clarkson University, and University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez), and ten utility and industry sponsors. 

As one of four consortia funded by the Department of Energy’s Grid Engineering for Accelerated Renewable Energy Deployment (GEARED) initiative, GridEd leverages electric industry research to educate a future electric grid workforce by empowering new and continuing education students not only to become competent and well-informed engineers but also to participate and influence major technological, social, and policy decisions that address critical global challenges.
