Researchers Exploring a More Secure, Reliable Power Grid with UNC System Support

Countries around the globe, including the U.S., are racing to be carbon neutral by 2050. The key to success will be balancing the need for clean energy with the need for security. A team of researchers across the UNC system, led by UNC Charlotte, is working to build a more secure and reliable power grid, thanks to funding through the UNC System Research Opportunities Initiative. 

Meera Sridhar, principal investigator and associate professor in the College of Computing and Informatics, is partnering with engineering researchers Badrul Chowdhury, professor of electrical and computer engineering; Rob Cox, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering and associate director of EPIC; and Mike Mazzola, Duke Energy Distinguished Professor and director of EPIC.
