UConn taps Gridmetrics data to boost community resilience in $4.4M US DOE-funded PROACTIVE project

Gridmetrics®, a subsidiary of CableLabs, announced its participation in PROACTIVE, a $4.4 million community resilience project within the Eversource Energy Center at the University of Connecticut. Funded as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s $33 million Renewables Advancing Community Energy Resilience (RACER) program, PROACTIVE represents the first effort leveraging Gridmetrics’ proprietary data to inform community resilience preparation and response.

Gridmetrics uses existing broadband infrastructure to deliver actionable insights about the state of power in the last mile of the distribution grid, providing real-time, hyperlocal power outage notifications down to the 1 square kilometer level. PROACTIVE will harness the data to develop and demonstrate a predictive community outage preparedness solution that leverages active last-mile visibility feedback to optimize restoration.
