Accelerating our energy future

Welcome, and thanks for your interest. Please visit the MSL website here.

The Microgrid Systems Lab (MSL) is a partnership with the Sustainable Technologies Center at Santa Fe Community College, designed to create a research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) laboratory for community scale (or “microgrid”) energy infrastructure, eventually branching out into telecommunications, water, traffic, emergency response, and integrated “smart systems” design. Technology, finance, regulation, user-centered design, testing and certification, and engineering will all be combined, with a workforce training and economic development component. The project has been endorsed by the New Mexico Federal congressional delegation, and the Santa Fe Regional Planning Authority’s Energy Task Force, with Resolutions in support passed by Santa Fe County and City; and it supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Energy for All initiative. Seed funding is provided by Los Alamos National Security.
