The WCEC Affiliate Program builds strong ties between industry, faculty and researchers affiliated with the WCEC, and the many WCEC projects and programs. The core funding provided by this program enables the WCEC to build strong connections with utilities, regulators, and government agency program staff, in support of our goals. To participate, companies make an annual unrestricted membership gift to the WCEC, and are eligible to propose separate technical service agreements and/or research agreements that address specific Affiliate member interests. Importantly,the Affiliate Program exposes students to Affiliate technologies and member companies through work and internship opportunities, displays at the WCEC facility, classes and seminars, and potential future employment opportunities.
