Bringing Together Partners for Real-World Microgrid Deployment

Sustainable Microgrid Partnership (SMP) is an initiative at the University of Wisconsin-Madison aimed at developing technology and conducting field studies to accelerate deployment of microgrids for rural electrification and resilience applications.

Our Platforms

Simple Electric Utility Platform (SEUP)

SEUP is an end-to-end microgrid solution with hardware/software interfaces and components necessary for augmenting emergent microgrids with communication, computing, and control (CCC) into full-fledged microgrids is presented. SEUP abstracts the details of sensing and CCC for the microgrid developers, installers, operators, and end-users to provide a seamless system.
