Smart Grid Investment Grants
The impact analysis is focused on presenting empirical results as well as reporting on the costs, benefits, lessons learned, and best practices associated with these focus areas:
Smart Grid Demonstration Projects
The Smart Grid Demonstration projects are demonstrating smart grid and energy storage technologies. Each of the projects will provide interim and final Technology Performance Reports.
These projects will assess the integration of advanced technologies with existing power systems including those involving renewable and distributed energy systems and demand response programs.
These projects involve a variety of technologies including advanced batteries, flywheels, and underground compressed air systems. These projects are demonstrating a variety of size ranges and system configurations and their impacts on the grid.
DOE is implementing an approach to provide an objective assessment of the benefits of the Smart Grid.
