Reports on Initial Results of Smart Grid Investment Grant Projects (December 2012)

DOE is implementing the Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The SGIG program involves 99 projects that are deploying smart grid technologies, tools, and techniques for electric transmission, distribution, advanced metering, and customer systems.

These reports present information about the devices and systems being implemented, deployment progress, expected benefits, and initial results for projects improving electric distribution system reliability; implementing advanced metering, customer systems, and time-based rates; adding advanced voltage and volt-ampere reactive (VAR) optimization (VVO) technologies; and installing advanced metering infrastructure (AMI).

For more information about how OE is leading the federal government’s efforts to accelerate modernization of the U.S. electric power grid by leveraging energy industry cost-share and collaboration to foster the deployment of smart grid technologies and systems and reduce barriers to investment, visit the Advanced Grid Integration Division page.
