On the forefront of research into the feasibility of the smart grid on a large scale is the Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM
) Systems Center, established in 2008 by the National Science Foundation and headquartered at North Carolina State University.
Some of the most prominent labs in the effort are under the umbrella of FREEDM
, the Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management Systems Center, an initiative announced by the National Science Foundation in September 2008.
