NREL's Energy Systems Integration Facility -- Testing a Smart Grid Future

Research output: NRELNewsletter


The National Renewable Energy Laboratory opened the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) with the idea to help industry conduct ground breaking research on energy systems that integrate a wide range of energy carriers and sources-solar and wind energy, batteries, electric vehicles, smart homes, heating and cooling systems, hydrogen fuel cells, and communications, to examine how technologies can work together in an efficient, holistic system. The research in the ESIF is helping the world's energy infrastructure move toward a flexible, connected future and is at the forefront of Smart Grid research and testing.
