  • Stanford Seeks Input on Challenges to Microgrid Development

A team of Stanford University students are conducting a research project on microgrid deployment in developed and emerging economies.

Their goal is to identify the most important obstacles to microgrid deployment in various economic regions. The data collected will be made anonymous, and those who complete the survey will receive access to the final report.

The project is sponsored by Stanford’s Bits and Watts Initiative, and students were are mentored by Stanford faculty and B&W industry members.
