Smart Grid R&D Multi-Year Program Plan (2010-2014) - September 2012 Update

The Smart Grid Research and Development (R&D) Program within is tasked with accelerating the deployment and integration of advanced communication, control, and information technologies that are needed to modernize the nation’s electric delivery network. The comprehensive and rigorous R&D effort proposed in this Multi-Year Program Plan (MYPP) lays the foundation to advance both the underlying science and the technology required to realize smart grid capabilities and benefits.

This MYPP for the Smart Grid R&D Program is the second annual update of the 2010 edition that was produced with significant input and contributions from the various stakeholders who attended the Smart Grid R&D Roundtable Meeting on December 9-10, 2009 and the MYPP Working Groups. This update incorporates further stakeholder input from the Smart Grid R&D Discussion Forum held in June 2012 and the DOE Microgrid Workshop in July 2012.
