Description:

The Department of Energy (DOE), Chicago Office, isseeking applications onbehalf of the DOE Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability(OEDER)to respond to the topic areas defined herein. The OEDER was newly named in2005 after the DOE Office of Energy Assurance merged with the DOE Office ofElectric Transmission and Distribution (OETD).The topic areas of this announcement address key technical challenges andhigh-priority activities identified in two Multi-Year Plans for three oftheoperating programs within the OEDER, namely, Electric DistributionTransformation (EDT) Program, GridWise Program, and GridWorks Program. TheEDTProgram and GridWise Program have jointly developed the ElectricDistributionMulti-Year Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment (RD3)Technology Roadmap Plan: 2005-2009 (December 2004);http://www.electricdistribution.ctc.com/pdfs/MYRD_ElecDist_11-3_rv9.pdfand the GridWorks Program has developed its GridWorks Multi-Year Plan,March2005. http://www.energetics.com/gridworks/events.htmlBoth the Electric Distribution Multi-Year Plan and the GridWorks Multi-YearPlan were developed with significant input and contributions from a broadstakeholder group, with representatives from utilities, load servingentities,technology providers, universities, national laboratories, and governmentagencies. The Plans further define specific activities with milestones toaddress several critical technology areas outlined in the National ElectricDelivery Technologies Roadmap (November 2003). The critical technologyareaaddressed by the Electric Distribution RD3 Plan is primarily on?DistributedSensors, Intelligence, Smart Controls, and Distributed Energy Resources?;andthe GridWorks Plan addresses key aspects of the critical technologies on?Advanced Conductors? and ?Power Electronics.?Thus this announcement seeks to support implementation of the Multi-YearPlans of the combined EDT/GridWise Programs (hereafter referred to aselectricdistribution R D) and the GridWorks Program by addressing identifiedtechnologygap areas in the respective Plans which are of the utmost technical andprogrammatic significance.
