Program Description:

Vids for Grids: New Media for the New Energy Workforce - This DOE sponsored program is designed to produce a series of short educational videos on power grid operations; and smart grid equipment demonstration, assembly, installation, and use. In collaboration with Northern Virginia Community College and George Mason University, the videos will be integrated into basic electrical engineering curriculum and made widely available to colleges, training centers, and the general public. The project is expected to increase student understanding of electrical engineering concepts, increase student interest in pursuing power systems careers, and demonstrate a best practice in integrating new media into engineering core curricula.

NEMA's "Vids 4 Grids: New Media for the New Energy Workforce" has produced a series of short videos that demonstrate Smart Grid equipment, explain electrical engineering concepts, and portray careers in electrical manufacturing. These videos are hosted here http://www.sgiclearinghouse.org/EducationalVideos.
