ResilientGrid Founder & CEO, Mike Legatt, PhD, will give a full day seminar on February 8, 2019 and again on April 25, 2019, on the principals he’s used for more than a decade to help electric utilities and grid operators perform their best. He’ll showcase the methods behind his development of ResilientGrid Map, and its predecessor which is still in use at the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).

The electric power grid continues the process of morphing into something new we haven’t seen before. This rapid transformation, with hundreds of thousands of assets already massing at the grid edge, will ultimately involve millions of Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices.

ResilientGrid Wins Capital Factory Smart City Challenge & $100K Investment

Cities across the world have been challenged to provide the fundamental necessities to grow — better transportation, affordable housing, clean energy. As one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, Austin is no exception. Although technology isn’t the answer to all our problems, it has always been a driving force in the growth of a city. We teamed up with MobilityXAustin Tech Alliance and the City of Austin to give one tech startup a $100,000 investment but left giving two startups the opportunity — what can we say? Two is better than one.

Our team of Mentors, city council members and officials, and representatives from MobilityX went through hours of pitches and one-on-one meetings with the six finalists. There were so many amazing companies that we couldn’t pick one — so we picked two! We decided that Cloud 9 and ResilientGrid would each receive a $100,000 investment to transform Austin into a city of the future.
