A Partnership of UConn and Eversource

Eversource Energy Center


Electric Grid Reinforcement

Together, Eversource and UConn are leading the industry with state-of-the-art research for delivering reliable power and managing extreme weather events.

We are increasing the resiliency of critical facilities and infrastructures to withstand storm impacts  

  • Identifying strategic areas for stronger electric grid design and reliability
  • Using advanced laser imaging for a 3-D measure of tree threats to overhead lines
  • Simulating grid conditions to evaluate reinforcement benefits
  • Assessing the benefits of distributed and emergency generation for increased reliability and shorter outages
  • Enhancing grid protection with an emphasis on cyber security best practices
