A Missouri S&T team of researchers led by Dr. Rui Bo, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, recently took second place in the Hydropower Operations Optimization (H2Os) Prize challenge sponsored by the United States Department of Energy (DOE).
The challenge was designed to develop methods to improve how hydropower is used in the electric grid and ensure that hydropower will continue to be a significant source of clean energy. The top team from the University of Utah and Grid Elevated took home a $30,000 prize. The Missouri S&T team was awarded $10,000, as was the other runner-up, Vassar Labs.
