Abstract: The paper presents the establishment of a Smart Electric Grid Demonstration and Training Facilities in Mindanao in order to help electric utilities and industries keep up with the emerging technologies in our current trends in power system. This will serve as a training center in smart grid technology for power industries, academe and other stakeholders in the power sector. This will provide opportunities to conduct research on how intelligently managing our electricity as one of the challenges in the power industry. In addition, this facility is not only a showcase of the academe industry collaboration but is also necessary to move research towards demonstrating the application of smart technologies in the electric power industry and illustrating on how to manage the use of electric energy efficiently.
