On November 6, 2019, DOE announced the results of the 2019 Grid Modernization Lab Call with funding of approximately $80 million (subject to appropriations) over three years. This funding aims to strengthen, transform, and improve the resilience of energy infrastructure to ensure the nation’s access to reliable and secure sources of energy now and in the future. The 2019 Grid Modernization Lab Call is the latest solicitation released over the past four years by the Grid Modernization Initiative, a crosscutting effort that focuses public and private partnerships to develop a portfolio of new tools and technologies that measure, analyze, predict, protect, and control the grid of the future. The DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office is participating in the Department-wide Grid Modernization Lab Call and has found alignment and interest in the areas of institutional support and analysis, cyber-physical security, and generation. See the list of projects.
