Resolve Magazine: Volume 2, 2012

A Smarter Energy Future

Welcome to the Fall 2012 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

According to a new multidisciplinary group of researchers at Lehigh, the future of energy distribution and consumption can benefit from the advances in communications and the Internet over the past few decades. The Integrated Networks for Electricity (INE) research cluster was established two years ago at Lehigh to add a layer of intelligence to the grid of power plants and substations that generate and distribute electricity to more than 300 million Americans. The INE’s researchers believe that advanced software, computer architecture, sensing devices and other information technologies have the potential to transform America’s power infrastructure into smart grids that provide electricity more efficiently, cleanly and securely.
