Working with its Program Review Committee, ELECTRI International has selected eight research proposals that will be presented to the Council at its January 2015 meeting in San Diego.  

The proposals were developed by each university research team based upon the Request for Proposal issued by ELECTRI. The topics approved for the final round of presentations include:

  • Alternative Language to Electrical Construction Contract Clauses – A Total Value Approach
  • Electrical Distribution and Construction - Developing an Agile Supply Chain Partnership
  • Ergonomic Injury Reduction Techniques for Electrical Line Work
  • How Integrated Project Deliver Impacts Specialty Contractors - the Benefits, Risks, and Opportunities
  • Commercial Building Commissioning, Energy Auditing and Retrofit Training for Electrical Contractors
  • Measuring Situational Awareness of Transmission/distribution (TD) Line Workers Using a Mobile Application
  • Assessing the Impact of Contractual Risk Transfer to Subcontractors on Project Success
  • Energy Storage Technologies and Deployment Opportunities

The projects proposed for 2015 range from grant requests of $25,000 to $49,500. Each investigator will have fifteen minutes to provide an overview of the proposed project and answer Council’s questions. The Council will then discuss each proposed project and vote on which initiatives to fund.
