Galvin Electricity Initiative Policy Toolkit


Founded by former Motorola chief Bob Galvin, the Galvin Electricity Initiative is leading a campaign to transform the way communities generate, deliver, and use electricity in the U.S. We promote a new smart grid paradigm that is consumer-focused and based on microgrids – the foundation of Perfect Power. Our Microgrid Hub, Electricity Consumer Principles, and Policy Framework have become industry leading examples of the electric revolution.

The Galvin Electricity Initiative lead a campaign to transform our nation’s power system into one that truly meets our needs for reliable, efficient, clean electricity service. The imperfect quality of power service today robs each American household of thousands of dollars a year, and the transformation of service quality to 21st century digital standards is critical to resolving the serious economic and environmental threats facing our nation. The Initiative resolved these threats by shifting to a new industry paradigm that is consumer-centric and driven by entrepreneurial innovation and smart technology.

In 2012, The Galvin Electricity Initiative culminated in the Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal (PEER), the driving force behind the vision to transform the way power systems are regulated, designed and operated. PEER provides a learning system to help energy stakeholders build the capacity to innovate and drive system transformation.
