DC electricity locally generated by solar energy sources can reduce energy losses by as much as 30% or more.

A DC microgrid is the key enabler of the “zero energy building model.” With minimum wastage in transmission and conversion, the use of locally generated DC electricity can provide 100% energy needs of a building. Cutting energy costs by the use of local DC power increases the competitiveness of manufacturing industry and saves jobs worldwide, the energy cost of which in some cases is as great as one-third of the operating cost of the manufacturing plant.

Team Information: RTPIS Lab, The Real-Time Power and Intelligent Systems Laboratory at Clemson University is a team of several professors in different disciplines with over 15 graduate and undergraduate students.
