Grid Modernization and Storage Division

Welcome to the Grid Modernization and Storage Division of the American Solar Energy Society. Join us today!

Go to the Grid Modernization and Storage Division Forum (be sure to sign in).

Present day grid was designed and built at a time when power plants in central locations exclusively controlled a 1-way flow of electricity to consumers. A modern day grid needs to accommodate a 2-way flow of power. Grid modernization will provide the foundation that supports the reduction of CO2 in all sectors.
