The Energy Storage and Microgrid Training and Certification (ESAM-TAC) is a credentialed training program that was created through an industry collaborative led by Penn State University (PSU).

ESAM-TAC prepares electrical workers for the safe and effective assembly, testing, commissioning, maintenance, repair, and retrofitting of energy storage and microgrid (ESM) systems, ranging in size from small residential and commercial applications to projects at the industrial, defense, and utility scale.

ProtoGen provided significant input on the curriculum, and designed the training apparatus for this national training program.
