The Siebel Energy Institute is a global consortium for energy research. It funds cooperative and innovative research grants in data analysis, including statistical analysis, and machine learning to accelerate advancements in the safety, security, reliability, efficiency, and environmental integrity of modern energy systems.
No institution received more grants than Illinois this year.
Subhonmesh Bose, assistant professor of ECE ILLINOIS, received an award for his proposal "Privacy by Design for Smart Energy and Transportation." This project will provide a framework for privacy-preserving optimization for energy and transportation systems.
ECE ILLINOIS professor Sayan Mitra received an award for his proposal "A Formal Verification and Synthesis Tool for Safety Critical Power Grid Infrastructures and Cyber-Physical Systems." This research will tackle the difficulties of verifying and designing controllers for smart power grids by combining serval technologies that drastically lower the complexity but provide formal guarantees of safety and security.
All the grants given were for $50,000.
