The Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium projects represent a comprehensive portfolio of critical research and development in advanced storage systems, clean energy integration, standards and test procedures, and a number of other key grid modernization areas. This effort recognizes regional differences and will strengthen regional approaches while defining a diverse and balanced national strategy through the following foundational efforts:

  • Core Activities—These projects (1.1-1.2.5) provide the fundamental knowledge, metrics, and tools needed to support all the Cross-Cut R&D and regional partnerships.
  • Pioneer Regional Partnerships—These partnerships (1.3.01-1.3.99) involve technical assistance to states, utilities, or other stakeholders that are facing key emerging grid modernization challenges.
  • Crosscutting R&D—These integrated projects (1.4.01-1.4.29) will further 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 to these 29 foundational projects, the portfolio includes 59 projects specific to key areas of impact and interest. These include: grid modeling (GM), solar (Sl), and wind (Wgrid).
