Webinar & Events - Electric Grid
The Inflation Reduction Act will dramatically accelerate renewable energy development, and the transmission grid will need substantial upgrades to accommodate the shifting generation portfolio. “Grid Enhancing Technologies,” as they were named by FERC, can unlock flexibility and additional capacity on the existing transmission infrastructure, enabling twice as much renewable generation in some regions.
This webinar will explore the newly updated State and Local Planning for Energy (SLOPE) Platform and applications for clean energy planning.
Overbuilding + curtailment acts as “implicit storage” enabling these resources to deliver 100%-ready power 24/365 without fail while using only a small affordable fraction of the seasonal storage reserves that would be required otherwise.
This webinar described existing participation barriers for DERs in wholesale electricity markets and how Order 2222 should help lower them.
What is the trajectory for the market penetration of electric vehicles (EVs) and what does it mean for the electrical grid? How can EVs be best integrated into the grid so that they increase system reliability and reduce emissions? What would be the impacts on the grid of different scenarios for EV charging?
In this webinar, Nader Samaan, a power systems engineer and the lead for PNNL’s Grid Analytics team, presented CReST-VCT and how it works in a real-world use case for Duke Energy.
The GridLAB-D software has been used to evaluate many technologies, such as demand response strategies, photovoltaic deployment impacts, smart inverter control strategies, and distribution automation impacts.
GridPIQ, a screening tool from the U.S. Department of Energy and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, helps users approximate the impact of adding a grid project, whether in the form of a technology or a new policy, to an existing system.
The Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources conducted a pilot to explore the ability of solar to reduce peak electricity loads on the local electric distribution system. Panelists discussed the project’s goals and design, and presented findings from Cadmus’ recently published program evaluation.
