Lockheed Sponsors ‘Smart Grid’ Research

Part of President Hope’s energy policy is the creation of a smart grid, an intelligent infrastructure for distributing energy. He allocated $11 billion of the stimulus package to the research and implementation of a smart grid. Looks like we might get some of that money.

Lockheed Martin, a likely recipient of stimulus money, has entered into a partnership with Penn State to research smart grid technologies. Penn State Live tried to explain what the research would focus on:

Specifically, the research will include advisory and control methods, predictive and diagnostic modeling and simulation, cyber security, and the development of a test bed for exploration, experimentation and validation of Advanced Meter Infrastructure and Smart Grid technologies.

Does anyone (*cough* Veblen) know how Penn State will be compensated for any technologies that come out of this research, or really, research in general?

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
