Project Summary:

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is collaborating with a consortium of research institutions to develop new Smart Grid technologies, quantify costs and benefits, validate new models, and create prototypes to be adapted nationally. The project consists of four broad initiatives including: Demand Response (DR): perform an integrated demonstration of Smart Grid operations and technology as applied to DR. Test bed sites will investigate a full range of user environments: residential, commercial, light industrial, and institutional Electric Vehicle (EV) Integration into the LADWP Grid: demonstrate aspects such as smart charging and battery aggregation; renewables and EV battery integration; an operational microgrid; demonstration of a ride/car share program at LADWP; and EV test bed sites at USC and UCLA Customer Behavior: demonstrate a comprehensive portfolio of studies and focused surveys related to the impact of Smart Grid communications systems and processes on customer usage; energy savings from using Smart Grid enabled interfaces; pricing options and programs; and effective messaging and incentives regarding electric vehicles Next-Generation Cyber Security: demonstrate technologies to show grid resilience against physical and cyber-attack, an operational testing approach for components and installed systems, and redefine the security perimeter to address Smart Grid technologies to the meter in residential and commercial sites.
