Resilient Energy Technology and Infrastructure Consortium

Creating an ecosystem of resilient energy innovation

Creating Paths to Energy Resilience

The Resilient Energy Technology and Infrastructure (RETI) Consortium was created to innovate and implement critical technologies for decarbonization and grid resiliency.

With funding through the National Science Foundation Regional Innovation Engines program, RETI will provide advanced, equitable and economically viable solutions that will help shape the future of energy transition. Focusing on industrial-aligned innovation, RETI will lay the groundwork for resilient energy supply and the development of grid infrastructure that securely and reliably balances power supply and demand.

The Power of Partnership

West Virginia University, University of Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Mellon University, collectively, demonstrate deep expertise spanning the energy sector and in transitioning emerging technologies into commercial markets.

Our Region: A History Of Energy Production

The RETI Consortium aims to revitalize WV-swPA as a comprehensive, resilient energy innovation engine, driving development of use-inspired decarbonization and grid-resilient technologies.

Serving a historic energy-producing epicenter

West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania are the fossil-fuel nexus powering regional steel and glass manufacturing along with gas and electrical utilities. RETI embraces a  multi-faceted approach working towards equity, economic justice, and inclusion of differently disadvantaged communities.

Core Partners

Strengthened by regional not-for-profit, industrial, government, and higher education partners, RETI has a powerful set of change makers, ready to shape the region’s future.
