Transforming Energy Through the Solar Energy Innovation Network

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


The United States electric grid is rapidly developing as more advanced energy technologies - such as photovoltaic (PV) systems, battery storage, and electric vehicles (EVs) - become more commonplace. Stakeholders are facing new challenges and opportunities as these distributed energy resources (DERs) drive grid modernization. The Solar Energy Innovation Network is a collaborative research effort that inspires teams of diverse stakeholders to develop and demonstrate new ways for solar energy and other DERs to improve the affordability, reliability, and resiliency of the nation's electric grid.
