The Department of Energy announced nearly $100m in grants to fund worker training and educational programs to develop a smart grid literate workforce. (see press release) Among the 54 selectees was Vids 4 Grids, a joint proposal from NEMA, Northern Virginia Community College, George Mason University, and NEMA member manufacturers. The project will create a dozen new media-friendly videos highlighting smart grid equipment, electrical manufacturing careers, and electrical engineering concepts. The videos will be targeted at high school seniors or first year college students. On a personal note, I'm honored and thrilled to be involved in this project, and will provide more updates in this space as they become available.
