Yesterday, DOE announced up to $25 million for the creation of a consortium dedicated to developing control technologies for a modernized electric grid. Grid-forming technologies automatically coordinate inverter-based and other resources to start up and maintain electricity on the grid. DOE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office and Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) will support the creation of a consortium to advance research and industry-wide collaboration on grid-forming technologies and ensure that they enhance power systems operation. U.S. universities, companies, nonprofits, and state, local, and tribal governments are encouraged to apply. Sign up to learn more about this funding opportunity at an upcoming webinar.
