GRID SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS DIVISION (OE-10)
The Grid Systems and Components Division is responsible for leading national efforts to develop “next generation” technologies, tools, and techniques for the electricity delivery system, ensuring an efficient, reliable, and resilient electric grid in the U.S. and providing global technology leadership. The Division manages research, development, and demonstration programs aimed at modernizing the Nation’s electricity delivery system, spanning hardware components (and associated software) and integrated grid systems.
GRID CONTROLS AND COMMUNICATIONS DIVISION (OE-20)
The Grid Controls and Communications Division manages research, development, and demonstration programs aimed at modernizing the Nation’s electricity delivery system including secure communications, controls and protection systems. The Division is responsible for engineering end-to-end systems for communications, grid modeling, measurement and controls, and operations and planning.
ENERGY STORAGE DIVISION (OE-30)
The Division prepares the “next generation” of energy storage technologies to provide system reliability, resilience, and efficiency. The Division supports applied materials development, which identifies safe, low-cost, and earth-abundant elements that will enable cost-effective long duration storage. The Division facilitates early adoption through improving storage reliability and safety; applying modeling and analysis; and validating performance for rapid commercialization.
