The National Energy Technology Laboratory is involved in a variety of smart grid and modern grid activities on behalf of the DOE Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE), DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EE) and the DOE Office of Fossil Energy (FE).
Under OE sponsorship, these activities include:
Under EE sponsorship, NETL is managing R&D projects on facility energy management systems; building materials and electric vehicles that interact with smart grid technologies.
Under FE sponsorship, NETL is conducting analytical and modeling studies on the integration of fossil energy resources in a modern grid that incorporate smart grid capabilities.
NETL is also a regular participant in various groups of smart grid experts convened to address specific challenges of deploying smart grid.
