PJM Featured in Book Showcasing Top Innovators in the Philadelphia Region


PJM is featured in a new book, “Innovate Philadelphia,” which showcases the people, companies, products, services and initiatives that are responsible for the dramatic changes that are underway in Philadelphia and its suburbs.

PJM appears in Chapter 10, the energy section of the book. The PJM feature explores how innovation is at the heart of the company and how we support and enable innovation in the power industry.

The book outlines how PJM fosters innovation within the company by employing professionals from wide-reaching areas of expertise, offering employee rotational programs to increase knowledge sharing and providing real career experience to approximately 60 co-ops and interns annually from Drexel, Temple and Widener Universities while also benefitting from the fresh perspectives of those students.

The spirit of innovation also branches out beyond PJM’s walls. PJM supports and facilitates emerging technology programs to integrate batteries, electric vehicles and other power storage into PJM’s markets. We also support ongoing initiatives to explore how the burgeoning development of distributed energy resources can be integrated more effectively with grid operations.
