There was a time when solar and wind energy were novelties. But today many of the world’s electrical grids utilize some form of renewable energy to power their infrastructures. Experts agree this is just the tip of the iceberg and that so much more is possible if the world’s best minds can just figure out how to better share ideas and information. That’s the idea behind the IEEE Electronic Power Grid (eGRID) Conference Nov. 12-14 in North Charleston. The conference, which is being held in the United States for the first time, will be hosted by Clemson University.
