The Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) was established as a strategic partnership between DOE and the national laboratories to bring together leading experts, technologies, and resources to collaborate on the goal of modernizing the nation’s grid. The benefits of the GMLC include more efficient use of resources; shared networks; improving learning and preservation of knowledge; enhanced lab coordination and collaboration; and regional perspective and relationships with local stakeholders and industry.  One of the main components of the GMI portfolio is the Grid Modernization Lab Call, which is a comprehensive effort of eighty-eight projects that span over the course of three years managed by the national laboratories.
