The EPR I Smart Grid Demonstration Initiative is a multi-year international collaborative initiative demonstrating the integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) in large scale demonstration projects. DERs integrated include demand response, storage, distributed generation, and renewable generation to advance widespread, efficient, and
cost-effective deployment of utility and customer-side technologies in the distribution system and to enhance overall power system operations. Large Scale host-site projects apply EPRI’s IntelliGridSM methodology to define requirements for technologies, communication, information, and control infrastructures that support integration of DER. Operations experience, integration issues, benefits analysis, and lessons learned will reveal the full range of standards and interoperability requirements needed to support the industry. Gaps revealed will identify critical areas of future smart grid research. Public updates are available on www.smartgrid.epri.com.
