The EPRI Smart Grid Demonstration Initiative is a seven-year international collaborative research initiative demonstrating the integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) in large scale demonstration projects. The initiative began in 2008 with a goal of leveraging the multi-million dollar Smart Grid investments being made by the electric utility industry. This three-year update picks up where the two-year update (EPRI Report 1021497) left off. Last year, we primarily reported on methodologies and tools that were used in developing the foundational research plans for each project. Most of the projects are transitioning from planning phases into deployment phases.
