Southeast Smart Grid Peer-to-peer Workshop - October 2011


U.S. Department of Energy


Progress Energy Service Company's (Progress Energy's) Optimized Energy Value Chain project involved deployment of advanced metering and distribution automation systems. The project implemented two-way communications to allow Progress Energy to manage, measure, and verify targeted demand reductions during peak periods. New information and communications systems capture commercial and industrial (C&I) meter data for billing and future implementation of new pricing programs and service offerings. Progress Energy implemented a distribution management system, automated switching, and integrated voltage and reactive power control to reduce line losses and improve service reliability. The project also installed advanced transmission systems, including on-line monitoring equipment on key and "at-risk" transmission substations and transformer banks. In addition, Progress Energy installed 255 electric vehicle charging stations in the Carolinas and Florida service territories.
