Four Universities Land DOE Grant for IoT Integration Research

The Department of Energy's Office of Electricity has issued a $6.7M research grant in support of four university-led projects to develop internet of things technologies.

The DOE said the projects were designed to explore how to integrate advanced IoT technologies into the energy infrastructure community. The universities involved are Stanford University, Purdue University, Portland State University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Department of Energy announced Tuesday.

Researchers will attempt to learn what services can be offered through connections between digital and physical grid systems built with advanced communication and control technologies.

DOE Undersecretary Mark Menezes said that the projects will support the department's goal to improve the security and resilience of energy infrastructure.
