Congrats to ECE faculty member Omar Faruque and his team on winning at the 2022 FSU Office of Research Development Accelerator competition. Their project entitled, “Energy Resilience - Developing Shared Strategies for Improved Resiliency of the Future Grid” won a $40,000 Accelerator Award. 

Faruque described the project as, “Our team will model how the COT Utilities’ power grid interconnects with the FSU 15kV medium voltage distribution grid —essentially a grid within a grid, and the perfect laboratory to explore strategies before scaling them community-wide.”
