The 2009 National Congestion Electric Transmission Study, required by section 216(a) of the Federal Power Act, examines transmission congestion constraints across the Nation and identifies areas that are transmission-constrained, but does not make recommendations concerning existing or new National Corridor designations. This is the second Congestion Study the Department has conducted, with the first issued in 2006.
Availability: This rate schedule shall be available to the South Mississippi Electric Power Association, Municipal Energy Agency of Mississippi, and Mississippi Delta Energy Agency (hereinafter called the Customers).
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) held the Microgrid Workshop on August 30-31, 2011, in San Diego, California. The purpose of the workshop was to convene experts and practitioners to assist the DOE in identifying and prioritizing research and development (R&D) areas in the field of microgrids.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) collaborated to examine the interdependencies between two critical infrastructure sectors – Dams and Energy. The study highlights the importance of hydroelectric power generation, with a particular emphasis on the variability of weather patterns and competing demands for water which determine the water available for hydropower production.
