Virginia Solar Initiative
The Virginia Solar Initiative aims to leverage the world-class research, expertise, and resources of the University of Virginia and deliver strategic and technical assistance to localities in order to reduce policy uncertainty related to the siting of renewable energy facilities in Virginia.
Energy Modeling and Policy Analysis
We seek to evaluate alternative technology pathways and policy options for decarbonizing energy systems. We are developing a suite of modeling tools to understand the interaction between clean energy sources, energy storage, smart distributed energy systems, the electrification of transportation, and more. We derive insights from our energy systems modeling, academic research on energy system transitions, and case studies from around the world to identify policy measures that support the transition to a clean, efficient and equitable energy system.
