The Tennessee Valley Authority recently stated that it plans to pump more funds into the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's College of Engineering and Computer Science to increase the research being done on smart grid technologies, the Chattanoogan reports.

According to the news provider, TVA presented the college with $25,000 to spend on improving the current grid transmission system and to better understand how to use network data analytics. The utility said it will work closely with the institution to develop curricula and research projects that are in line with the current demands of the industry.

"TVA is very pleased to have this opportunity to advance the skills of our workforce by partnering with UTC," said Jacinda Woodward, vice president for Transmission Reliability and Operations for TVA. "We are proud to support the University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science through internships and course development that will strengthen our technical abilities and participate in research to advance TVA’s bulk electric system and transmission grid modernization in general."

SUBNET works with major utilities like TVA to help them install smart grid technologies, such as substation automation and remote access, which have proven to greatly improve operating efficiency.
