GridEd is a collaborative educational initiative consisting of the Electric Power Research Institute, four universities, utility and industry sponsors.
This educational initiative seeks to develop and train the next generation of power engineers so that they can help shape the electric grid of the future by anticipating and fulfilling the needs of changing requirements.
GridEd leverages electric industry research to educate a future electric grid workforce by empowering new and continuing education students not only to become competent and well-informed engineers but also to participate and influence major technological, social, and policy decisions that address critical global challenges.
