In April 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Grid Modernization Initiative (GMI) conducted its first external peer review of projects awarded to the GMLC to help modernize the nation’s grid. Thirty foundational projects across six technology areas were reviewed by a total of sixteen (16) external experts from industry, academia, other government agencies, and the non-profit sector. Each review panel developed overall recommendations regarding the focus, management, and impact of the projects in each technology area. In addition, a team of lead reviewers recommended overall guidance for GMI based on the peer review.
Results from this review are now available. For more information and the report, see the DOE website.
