The U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory announced today its membership in the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative (SGCC). Since its founding in March 2010, SGCC has attracted many member organizations to listen, educate and collaborate for modernized, intelligent electrical systems.
“Brookhaven Lab is extremely pleased to now be a part of this broad collaboration that will help develop strategies to improve reliability and reduce losses on our electric grid,” said Brookhaven Associate Lab Director for Global and Regional Solutions Gerald Stokes. “We look forward to sharing our research findings and hearing from others who are similarly engaged.”
One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security.
