  • U.S. Smart Grid Development and Global Smart Grid Coordination Presentation to the Board on

    Global Science and Technology

    Director, Smart Grid Task Force June 21, 2012

  • Better, Smarter Electricity Grid-- A National Energy Policy Priority


    A modernized electric system is

    part of President Obama’s

    Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future.

    “We'll fund a better, smarter electricity

    grid and train workers to build it –

    a grid that will help us ship wind and

    solar power from one end of this country

    to another.”

    President Barack Obama

    “America cannot build a 21st century economy with a 20th century electricity

    system. By working with states, industry leaders, and the private sector, we

    can build a clean, smart, national electricity system that will create jobs,

    reduce energy use, and expand renewable energy production.”

    Energy Secretary Steven Chu

  • Smart Grid Focus


    Institutional issues/solutions must be considered in conjunction with these technology needs

    Smart Grid Domain

    Generation End User Transmission Distribution

    System understanding and control: visualization, communications, computation

    System flexibility for stability: storage, demand response, accommodating increased variability

    Interface with end users: deployment of AMI,

    microgrids, etc.

    Integration of renewables: improved

    operation, planning, etc.

    Improved efficiencies in buildings and


    Cleaner generation


    Accessing high quality sources of renewable energy and

    addressing line congestion

    Accommodating increased use of EV, PV, DG, and

    consumer participation

    System security: physical security, cyber security, mitigating increased vulnerabilities

    Seamless connection: two-way power flows and

    increased data streams

  • Application of Advanced Metering Infrastructure

    Investments in AMI are being made by 75% of the SGIG projects


    Peak and Overall Demand Reduction

    62 projects are pursuing ……

    • 40 w/ pricing programs

    • 25 w/ customer systems

    • 21 w/ direct load control devices
