SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – University of Utah electrical and computer engineering assistant professor Masood Parvania and his team at his Utah Smart Energy Laboratory have received a three-year, $4.4 million research award.
The award comes from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office.
It will help advance solar energy’s role in strengthening the resilience of the U.S. electricity grid.
The project will develop an automated resilience management system to enhance Salt Lake City’s power grid in case of a power outage.
Rocky Mountain Power will work with the Utah Smart Energy Laboratory to test and validate the technology at multiple locations in Utah.
