Sandia National Laboratories
Exceptional service in the national interest
Modernizing our electrical grid is a tremendous undertaking, requiring the coordination and collaboration of a wide range of stakeholders, including government, regulators, utilities, and—perhaps most importantly—the myriad of consumers.
Sandia supports national efforts to modernize the electric grid by:
Our work in grid modeling, microgrids, distributed systems, and power electronics supports the increased use of renewable energy as well as better protection of critical energy infrastructure and assets. A modern electric grid will be the backbone of a decarbonized power system. Grid modernization is also critical to increase infrastructure resilience to the impacts of climate change.
