The Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) was created in 1996 as a National Science Foundation Industry-University Cooperative Research Center to address key challenges in creating a modern electric energy infrastructure. Under the banner of PSERC, 39 industries and 13 U.S. universities are working collaboratively to support:
- An efficient, secure, resilient, adaptable, and economic electric power infrastructure;
- a new generation of educated technical professionals in electric power;
- knowledgeable decision-makers on critical energy policy issues; and
- high-quality university programs in electric power engineering.
