Distributed Energy Innovation Partnership

The Distributed Energy Innovation Partnership (DEIP) convenes industry, academic, nonprofit, and public agency leaders to conduct research, education, and outreach on distributed energy technologies including solar, energy storage, combined heat and power, microgrids, electric vehicle infrastructure, and building/campus energy management. Headquartered at The Navy Yard, DEIP serves as a nexus for collaboration and exchange for regional, national and global applications of distributed energy systems. The partnership leverages interdisciplinary expertise to advance research in critical topics and to grow capacity of students and professionals as leaders in the pursuit of a vibrant distributed energy industry.
