Southern Company Smart Grid Demonstration Host-Site Project Description
Southern Company

This report provides a description of the Southern Company Smart Grid Demonstration Host-Site Project as part of the Electric Power Research Institute's (EPRI's) multi-year smart grid demonstration initiative. The EPRI initiative includes core smart grid research and a number of large-scale smart grid projects currently with 18 funding utility members. The project is focused on integrating large-scale distributed energy resources (DER)—including demand response, storage, distributed generation, and distributed renewable generation—into a "virtual power plant" to advance widespread, efficient, and cost-effective deployment of utility- and customer-side technologies in distribution and overall power system operations. Host-site projects apply EPRI's IntelliGridsm methodology to define requirements for the technologies and communication, information, and control infrastructures that support integration of DER.
