The Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium projects represent a comprehensive portfolio of critical research and development in grid design and planning tools; sensing, operations and control; security and resilience; and a number of other key grid modernization areas.
Completed: GMLC projects began in 2016 with a set of Core Activities to provide the fundamental knowledge, metrics, and tools needed to support crosscutting research and development to support grid modernization, as well as those that focused on regional grid issues and partnerships. In 2017, a new group of projects was added to the portfolio to drive greater resiliency in utility distribution systems.
New: Twenty-three new projects were added to the GMLC with a new round of funding issued in in 2019. These focus on a revised, but similar, topical areas consisting of Resilience Modeling, Energy Storage and System Flexibility, Advanced Sensors and Data Analytics, Institutional Support and Analysis, Cyber-Physical Security and Generation.
Current: Several of the original core research activities are ongoing. The cross-cutting research and development projects continue to advance grid modernization by coupling multiple hardware, software, and institutional solutions into integrated and modernized grids at a scale and a pace necessary to meet national goals. In addition, projects specific to key areas of impact such as grid modeling, solar and wind are ongoing.
