The Center for Sustainability hosted the semi-annual meeting of the Missouri S&T Microgrid Industrial Consortium on Jan. 12. The 29 attendees included current consortium members, faculty researchers, students, and guests. Consortium members reported that they were pleased with the research progress presented by Dr. Pourya Shamsi, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, Dr. Fatih Dogan, professor of materials science and engineering, and their students. During Shamsi’s presentation, he identified an opportunity to utilize consortium member data in his model for selecting the optimum battery location and size within a microgrid. George Mues, Ameren’s technology transfer manager (R&D), corporate planning, agreed to host a follow-up meeting at Ameren on Jan. 19, to facilitate the gathering of the data for the model.

Guests Dr. Alistair Davidson, representing the International Lead Agency, and Boris Monahov, representing the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium, led a discussion on the potential to partner on a lead acid battery microgrid demonstration project in the Missouri S&T EcoVillage. They will be following up with a partnership agreement proposal.
