The Center for Sustainability hosted the semi-annual meeting of the Missouri S&T Microgrid Industrial Consortium Jan. 12. The 29 attendees included consortium members, faculty researchers, students and guests. Dr. Pourya Shamsi, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, Dr. Fatih Dogan, professor of materials science and engineering, and students presented about research progress. Shamsi identified the opportunity to use consortium-member data in his model for selecting the optimum battery location and size within a microgrid. George Mues, manager of technology transfer at Ameren, agreed to host a meeting at Ameren on Jan. 19 to facilitate the gathering of the data for the model.

Dr. Alistair Davidson, representing the International Lead Agency, and Boris Monahov, representing the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium, were guests at the meeting. They led a discussion on the potential to partner on a lead acid battery microgrid demonstration project in the Missouri S&T EcoVillage. They will be following up with a partnership agreement proposal. Mues concluded the meeting by expressing his pleasure with the progress that has been made with the consortium.
