Rise Vision & Mission
The RISE Vision is the creation of a flexible, resilient, cost-effective and sustainable electricity infrastructure, from generation to end-user operations.
The mission of the center on Real-Time Intelligence for Smart Electric Grid Operations (RISE) is to define, initiate and accelerate the transformation of electricity infrastructure operations end-to-end to fulfill the goal of dramatically improved grid reliability, resilience, efficiency and sustainability leading to lower cost of energy delivered. This requires the evolution of a new operating paradigm for the new electric energy industry by developing long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government.
The RISE mission will be accomplished by focusing on the following main objectives:
To develop an end-to-end grid operational system of systems architecture with emphasis on the integration of power system, communication and information systems, computational systems, cyber systems, market systems, and policy
To develop scalable grid intelligence (end-to-end) for real-time operations
To develop real-time dynamic energy management systems
To educate the next generation of system engineers who understand the interdisciplinary nature of the new electric energy industry important to the member companies
