About Us

The purpose of the Initiative for Initiative Electric Power Systems is to address the multitude of challenges that emerge from the design, planning, and operation of the next generation of power systems and markets by bringing together faculty from across Penn State University (PSU) who are working on engineering, economics, earth sciences, and other relevant disciplines to develop innovative interdisciplinary research projects focused on sustainable electric power. The expertise at PSU in these critical fields and the culture of effective interdisciplinary research, a tremendous and unique opportunity exists for us to organize ourselves more effectively and make Penn State the leader in research and education on sustainable power systems.
