Robert W. Galvin
Center for Electricity

The mission of the Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation is to pursue groundbreaking work in the generation, transmission, distribution, management and consumption of electricity.

The Galvin Center is bringing together researchers, industry, government and innovators to “plug-in” to IIT’s smart microgrid, research laboratories and Technology Park, creating a hub – or sandbox – for new innovations in advanced grid technology.
