Demonstrating Coordinated Resources in the Pacific Northwest

Sept. 15, 2015

U.S. Department of Energy



Battelle led 11 regional utilities, six technology partners and two universities under one smart grid project with $89 million from the U.S. Department of Energy's Smart Grid Demonstration Program. The funding, derived from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, was matched by the project participants, and allowed for:

  • Modernizing distribution infrastructure with smart-grid-enabled components.
  • Deploying transactive control to bring market incentives to smaller producers and consumers of electricity, thereby providing a level playing field for new entrants and business models.

The Department of Energy's Office of Electricity (OE) recognizes that our nation's sustained economic prosperity, quality of life, and global competitiveness depends on an abundance of secure, reliable, and affordable energy resources. OE leads the Department of Energy's efforts to ensure a resilient, and flexible electricity system in the United States. Learn more about OE >>
