ProtoGen has helped to shape, expand and elevate awareness of a range of on-going grid modernization initiatives in the Philadelphia Navy Yard independent grid. Their technical capability, expertise and innovation culture has helped us to develop Bldg 7R into a one-of-a-kind research testbed as well as translate project learnings into meaningful energy storage and microgrid curriculum content and training experiences.

Most recently, they’ve helped connect the DOE-funded Penn State-Mid Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership Center to the municipal and co-operative utility markets within Pennsylvania. I value their partnership and would happily recommend to anyone who asked.
