New class is writing the book on emerging building and power grid interactions

Feb. 26, 2019

“I love pursuing crazy, big, ‘research-y’ ideas and I like talking about them with students. But I also truly believe in keeping courses as up-to-date as possible with what industry needs,” said Assistant Professor Kyri Baker, who developed and teaches the new Grid Connected Systems class. “I am not aware of another course at CU Boulder – or even in the country – that focuses solely on building-to-grid interactions from both qualitative and quantitative perspectives right now. This is education that students will need and that industry is asking for.”
