Grid Modernization and Storage Division

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

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.
