Increasing my powergrid?

I have engineering level 5 is there anything else I can train to get more powergrid?

(from Eve-wiki.net)

Skills
- A ship's total Powergrid output is increased 5% per level of Engineering skill.
- The Advanced Weapon Upgrades skill decreases the Powergrid requirements of all Turrets, Missile Launchers, and Smartbombs by 2% per level.
- The Shield Upgrades skill decreases the Powergrid requirements of Shield Resistance Amplifiers, Shield Extenders, and Shield Rechargers by 5% per level.

Modules
- Auxiliary Power Controls (aka, Micro Auxiliary Power Cores), increase the Powergrid of the ship by a small, yet absolute number. It is ideal for Frigates, who would benefit less from a percent increase than a static one due to their low starting Powergrids.
- Power Diagnostic Units give a small percent increase to Powergrid, as well as a series of small enhancements to Shields and Capacitor. It is ideal if only a small increase is needed to Powergrid, since you can enjoy the other benefits as a side-effect.
- Reactor Control Units give a percent increase to Powergrid. Larger ships benefit more from this module due to their greater Powergrids.

Implants
- The Slot 6 Hardwiring Inherent Implants 'Squire' PG series of Implants will increase the Powergrid of the ship you are currently in by 1, 3, or 5% depending on which you have plugged in.
- The Slot 6 Hardwiring Zainou 'Gnome' KUA500, KUA1000 and KUA2000 will reduce shield upgrade module power needs by 1%, 3% or 5% respectively.

Rigs
- The Core Defence Charge Economizer decreases the Powergrid requirements of Shield Resistance Amplifiers, Shield Extenders, and Shield Rechargers by a percent.
- Ancillary Current Router I and Ancillary Current Router II increase the powergrid by 10% and 15% respectively.

Directly? No. But there are a whole series of skills you can train that reduce the amount of grid various modules use (or the amount of penalty various rigs introduce).

In addition to what Jennifer Starling said, specific Rigging skills can also help free up grid in some cases. I couldn't tell you which rigs exactly increase PG cost, but it's worth checking if you're having issues.

I think it's the weapon rigs that increase the corresponding weapon's PG requirements and every level in the rig skill decreases the penalty by 10%.

Specifically, it's the turret rigs. Launcher and drone rigs wreak havoc on CPU instead.

That and Energy Grid Upgrades 5. The 50% increase in effectiveness from meta 4 RCUs to RCU IIs is absolutely huge.

Granted, not needing an RCU in the first place is nice and all, but if you have to fit one, RCU IIs open up a huge number of additional options over their lesser brothers.

You probably already know this, but it is worth mentioning that you can save PG/CPU by using meta 4 weapons instead of T2. Faction gear uses even less sometimes. No, it does not add PG directly, but it is just as effective.
