Smart Grid Funding, Benefits and Implementation
Until recently the bulk of policymaking in the electric energy area has focused on generation and fuel supply issues. With the advent of the ARRA, the Department of Energy is now preparing to make stimulus investments in the distribution grid. Part of the driver for these investments is the fact that a number of states have adopted renewal portfolio standards to diversify generation capability into solar, wind and geothermal power sources. However, to be able to integrate these renewable sources on a localized basis, new local grid structures are needed which can integrate diverse power supplies and provide for reliable transmission to end users. This webinar will focus on the definitions and benefits of smart grid applications that have been developed by the Department of Energy as well as rules associated with Smart Grid Grants and Demonstration programs. In addition, we will describe some recent plans developed by major utilities who are seeking to obtain Federal funding for their Smart Grid programs.
