Research highlight: Microgrid Consortium

Missouri S&T has formed an industrial research consortium that will leverage state-of-the-art facilities, advanced research capabilities, and industry expertise to investigate the opportunities and challenges presented by micro grids. The current industry and government agency members are Ameren; Azimuth Energy; Doe Run; Missouri Public Utility Alliance (MPUA); and the Missouri Department of Economic Development, Division of Energy. Missouri S&T brings a wealth of research knowledge and technical expertise to the consortium membership.

The new consortium will build upon the success of the Solar Village Microgrid partnership that created a unique research asset on the Missouri S&T campus. A new development, the S&T EcoVillage, provides an ideal site and opportunity to demonstrate new microgrid technologies.
