A Partnership of UConn and Eversource

Eversource Energy Center


Eversource Energy Center (EEC) New Research Projects

The EEC recently hosted a workshop where principal investigators had the opportunity to present new research projects kicked off in the areas of (i) Preparedness and emergency response, (ii) Vegetation management & risk analysis, (iii) Cyber and physical security and (iv) Renewable energy. These projects will run through Spring 2023 and project milestones and deliverables will be visible through the Center website.

Below are links to each project presentation grouped by thematic area.
