The Pacific Northwest Center of Excellence for Clean Energy (PNCECE) and the Energy Educators Institute* are pleased to offer a Smart Grid Train the Trainer class designed for faculty and energy industry trainers. Participants will learn how to enhance curriculum and educational programs with cutting-edge smart grid information.

Topics will include:
* Smart grid definitions
* The development of smart grid and why we need it
* The key differences between traditional power grids and smart grids
* How the power systems will change as we move forward with smart grid technologies
* Take-away modules that will enhance any part of existing training and education programs

This class was developed through PNCECE’s Department of Energy Smart Grid Workforce Training grant in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) and Portland State University (PSU) Mark O. Hatfield School of Government with input from Avista Utilities.

These workshops, developed and taught by world-class faculty – Dr. Robert Topping, System Design Consultant; Dr. Kevin Schneider, PNNL; and Jeff Hammarlund, PSU Public Policy Expert – will be followed by an enhanced training session that will introduce NEW open source programs and classroom materials at the Educators Institute on June 19.
