WTEC has recently completed a study on the R&D being done around the world to help renewable energy fit into existing energy infrastructures, like electrical grids. That requires systems engineering on a scale beyond anything done before. To make progress, WTEC sent a team of U.S. experts to top labs in Europe and Asia to bring back good ideas. The final report is at http://wtec.org/SEEM/ A video version of the final workshop has been archived and can be viewed by registering at: http://www.tvworldwide.com/events/nsf/130314/
The World Technology Evaluation Center is the nation’s leading organization in conducting international technology assessments via peer review. WTEC has conducted over 70 such studies since 1989 under grants from many Federal agencies. For more information, visit http://www.wtec.org.
