1 min read

The Department of Energy is investing $20 million in research and development projects to apply artificial intelligence to energy science and grid management. DOE said Wednesday. Eight projects have been identified that would receive a combined amount of almost $7 million to study on AI, big data and machine learning applications in grid resiliency. These projects are funded under DOE's Office of Electricity. 

Meanwhile, the department's Office of Science intends to allot $13 million for projects to boost AI's use for scientific research and forecast. Eleven million dollars would support algorithm and software development, while another $2 million would cover AI-based prediction applications.

The department will solicit for the remaining scientific projects through May. Interested firms, universities, national laboratories and nonprofits may submit letters of intent through May 8, 2019.
