Grid of the Future


Project Description

This project is researching and develop a compelling proposal for a ‘grid of the future’ accelerator program run by Greentown Labs and it’s partners.  The purpose of this program will be to redefine how utilities and corporates work with early stage technologists to enhance the resiliency, efficiency and digitalization of the future electricity grid to enable further deployment of renewables. CPL will publish a discussion paper on the importance of storage in cutting peak demand in energy markets and in greater operationalizing distributed energy resources.

This research project is being conducted in parallel with an internship at Greentown Labs in Somerville, MA.
