This presentation will expose a couple unique challenges surrounding deployment of solar energy in the mini-grid context in developing countries. We will also discuss a methodology and tool for design of solar-hybrid solutions that can meet these demands with minimum tariff charged to the client.


Dr. Amy Mueller’s research is rooted broadly at the intersection of science and engineering in the space where new discovery is limited by our ability to collect data at appropriate spatial or temporal scales or where novel technical solutions can help facilitate broad adoption of environmentally-beneficial practices.
She has been a co-Director at STG International since its founding in 2006 and recently became a faculty member at NEU jointly appointed in CEE and MES. Dr. Mueller completed a NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Washington and received her PhD from MIT in Environmental Chemistry.  She also got her M. Eng and B.S. from MIT in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
