The energy industry is being digitally transformed by investment at all levels of production, generation, transmission, and distribution: sensors, data analytics, new privacy-aware markets, and usage of smart meters in homes are all part of this transformation. However, the transformation of energy to be resilient to large environmental changes, faults (including maintenance errors), and cyber-attacks is still a work in progress. The early lead of energy operators in embracing digital transformation has enabled those systems to use digital transformation not only to enhance energy efficiency but also to lead the way to a lower-carbon, higher-efficiency economy that will enhance both energy and climate security.
This C3DTI Second Call for Proposals addresses the challenges for AI and Digital Transformation for Energy and Climate Security.
Proposal Principal Investigators (PIs) must be faculty researchers from C3DTI consortium partner institutions. Co-Investigators may be from C3DTI consortium partner institutions or other institutions. Preference will be given to proposals where the majority of the work and expenditures occur at C3DTI consortium partner institutions. C3DTI strongly encourages the submission of proposals that are interdisciplinary and inter-institutional across C3DTI consortium partner institutions as well as leading research institutions around the world. By submitting a proposal to this solicitation, proposal PIs and co-Investigators agree to serve as reviewers for other proposals submitted to this solicitation.
