Exciting GridSTAR project means industry benefits
Philadelphia is a very exciting place to be right now if you’re interested in energy efficient technology (and I hope you are!).
Located in Philadelphia’s historic Naval Yard, the new GridSTAR Center is a green energy technology infrastructure that involves multiple technologies working together to help us learn how smart grid technology can be applied to a residential and commercial setting to maximize energy efficiency.
Part of the project involves a specialized camera that photographs the atmosphere and compares that information to the performance of the solar grid system. This way we can learn more about how weather affects solar panel output.
Another focus is on cultivating talent and research for the continued development of the industry (and the professionals working in it). If you’re seeking a project to get involved in that will likely make a big difference in helping bring energy efficiency to the people, this might be what you’re looking for.
