Congratulations to Assistant Professor Juan Moreno-Cruz whose proposal received seed funding from Georgia Tech's Strategic Energy Institute.

In fall 2016, the Strategic Energy Institute (SEI) issued a Request for Proposals for cross-disciplinary energy projects focused on the intersection of the physical and digital worlds. The primary objective was to facilitate broader community at Georgia Tech linking the computing, visualization, and data sciences with science, engineering, business, policy, and economics relevant to energy infrastructure.

Moreno-Cruz's proposal with Professor Santiago Carlos Grijalva in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering was among three projects selected to receive funding:

Proposal Title: Economics for the Internet of Energy: A Techno-Economic Framework for Transactive Energy Prosumers. 

Proposal Team:  Santiago Carlos Grijalva, Professor, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering; Juan Moreno-Cruz, Assistant Professor, School of Economics

Proposal "Snapshot": With the deployment of distributed energy resources in many regions, the traditional passive customers are now able to produce and, often store, energy. They become prosumers. Equipped with sensors and communications, these prosumers can interact through a cyber-physical platform to maximize their shared value in an emerging Internet of Energy. This project will explore new techno-economic models of interacting energy prosumers and the information requirements associated with exchange in the cyber-physical platform.
