CG Power Center for Intelligent Power (CIP)
The $20 million CG Power Center for Intelligent Power (CIP)
spurs new opportunities for advanced research and development, prototyping, and education and workforce training to facilitate clean energy and smart grid technologies. More than 50 scientists, researchers and engineers are located at SUNY Poly's Albany NanoTech Complex, and CG Power anticipates adding another 50 high-paying consulting, engineering and design jobs based on outcomes from this collaboration with SUNY Poly.
CG Power and SUNY Poly's E2TAC jointly conduct leading-edge research and development to accelerate the use of a wide range of smart grid technologies, including advanced products and applications to integrate renewable energy facilities into power transmission and distribution systems; novel systems to manage reactive power flow and voltage in energy transmission; development of monitoring and evaluation control systems to allow real-time analysis of the performance of these systems at the substation or micro-grid level; and improved workforce training for operators serving advanced substations with smart grid capabilities.
