 muGrid AnalyticsTravis SimpkinsCTO Small Business 3A, behind-the-meter electrical systems for building resilience and peak load managemenmuGrid Analytics solves wicked problems at the intersection of energy and economics using math and modeling. We provide bankable techno-economic optimization of renewable energy, energy storage, and microgrids to project developers, financiers, component manufacturers, utilities, and property owners. With a one-two punch of in-depth experience in the new energy industry and in the modeling, design, and operation of complex technical systems, muGrid provides comprehensive, data-driven advisory and design services to a wide range of energy stakeholders throughout the project life cycle. muGrid was founded by Dr. Travis Simpkins, who previously architected and developed the microgrid modeling capabilities for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, including the REopt platform.

muGrid is a woman-owned small business.

muGrid has recently been awarded a DOE Phase 1 SBIR for the Predictive economic optimization of energy storage microgrids. That work would be very syngierstic with this BENEFIT FOA, particularly Topic 3A, that focused on behind-the-meter peak load management and resilience.

muGrid has developed optimized command and control for building-level BESS, intelligent EV charging, building HVAC, and other distributed energy resources that uses weather forecasts, real-time energy prices, and real-time building and network electrical load data. We have multiple deployments of the technology underway.

muGrid would be particularly interested in teaming with those who could benefit from our Redcloud Energy Management System, our modeling and economic optimization expertise, and our experience in the space.

 Louisiana State UniversityAly Mousaad AlyDr. Academic Building Envelop Topic 2: Innovative, Replicable, and Low-Cost Roof and Attic RetrofitsI am passionate about wind engineering, structural dynamics, and renewable energy. My research focuses on retrofitting building roofs with aerodynamic features and solar panels to minimize hurricane damage while promoting eco-friendly energy production.
My expertise and capabilities align seamlessly with the goals of "Topic 2," and I am eager to contribute valuable insights through research conducted at LSU's open-jet facility.
My expertise extends to open-jet wind testing, where I recreate real-world atmospheric conditions. I want to leverage the LSU open-jet facility to conduct comprehensive tests, simulating wind and rain effects on roofs. This facility serves as a crucial resource for advancing my research.
In addition to experimental work, I employ computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations to enhance our understanding and mitigation of hurricane damage. My commitment to this field is reflected in my publications on retrofitting roofs for aerodynamic efficiency and sustainable energy integration.
My proficiency in wind and structural engineering positions me ideally for research on "Topic 2: Innovative, Replicable, and Low-Cost Roof and Attic Retrofits." I am well-equipped to utilize the LSU open-jet facility, which offers a unique opportunity to test and refine novel roof retrofit strategies under realistic conditions.
