Once again, WSU is a key player in a statewide effort to address the critical national need for a reliable and secure electric power grid. WSU’s long history and expertise in power engineering makes it an obvious partner for these public-private partnerships. Securing major state and federal funding, like the $2.25 million Clean Energy Fund grant that the Department of Energy is matching for this new project, is crucial to advancing research and innovation. However, WSU’s role in this project also points to the importance of smaller, private contributions that make this kind of collaboration possible. » More …
