Samuelsen helps launch microgrid project

Scott Samuelsen, AirUCI faculty and Director of AirUCI partner APEP, is the Primary Investigator on a groundbreaking new project to build the first community microgrid projects in California.  This new housing development will feature two neighborhoods with self-supporting energy systems that can be connected if needed.  Working with several partners — the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), SunPower, KB Home, Southern California Edison (SCE), and Schneider Electric (SE) — this testing and demonstration project equips each home with smart energy systems which will be monitored and evaluated by APEP to enhance these technologies.  Read the article
