ISO-NE hosts class of 26 interns

Interns present their final projects to ISO New England senior staff.

ISO New England hosted a class of 26 interns this summer. Hailing from top universities around the nation, the students completed projects relevant to the electric power industry and capped off the program by presenting their findings to senior staff.

The 2022 interns were the first to work on the ISO’s Holyoke campus since 2019. In addition to learning and collaborating with colleagues in the office, they had the opportunity to visit the Central Heating Plant at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; get an in-depth overview of the power grid on a tour of the ISO’s Backup Control Center; and tour the Lempster Wind Power Project in New Hampshire. 

“As we reflect on the projects they have completed in these short 11 weeks, it’s incredible to see how much they have grown, both independently and as a group,” said Angela Gaspar, university relations specialist for ISO New England. “They have made direct impact on the future of New England’s power grid through their independent projects, and we are grateful for their hard work.”
