Grid Modernization: Updated GMI Strategy 2020   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Introduction: "The Grid Modernization Initiative (GMI) coordinates research and development (R&D) across the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to help set the nation on an affordable path to a resilient, secure, and reliable grid with a reduced environmental impact. The GMI focuses on developing new tools and technologies to measure, analyze, predict, protect, and control the grid and interdependent infrastructure. The results of this work will inform regulators and other oversight bodies, policymakers, industry and other stakeholders to facilitate widespread adoption of new technologies in generation, transmission and delivery. [...] The GMI envisions a fully integrated energy system from fuel to generation to load, including interdependent infrastructures, and an emphasis on maintaining the reliability and resilience of the grid. The GMI is a collaborative partnership of five DOE Offices: Fossil Energy; Nuclear Energy; Electricity; Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE); and Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER). These five Offices and steering committee drive activities under the GMI that complement individual investments and programs that each Office implements separately. In addition, GMI past and future activities have been and will be coordinated with DOE's Office of Science, Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), and crosscutting Energy Storage Grand Challenge, electricity delivery system, and artificial intelligence efforts."
