Energy Department Invests Over $10 Million to Improve Grid Reliability and Resiliency

The Energy Department announced more than $10 million for projects to improve the reliability and resiliency of the U.S. electric grid and facilitate quick and effective response to grid conditions. This investment which includes six projects across five states- California, Hawaii, Missouri, North Carolina and Washington - will help further the deployment of advanced software that works with synchrophasor technology to better detect quickly-changing grid conditions and improve grid reliability. The six awards announced, subject to final negotiation, include: Pacific Gas & Electric ($2.9 million DOE investment; $3.9 million recipient cost-share), Quanta Technology ($998,920 DOE investment; $1 million recipient cost-share), Electric Power Group ($908,613 DOE investment; $931,788 recipient cost-share), Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company ($1.4 DOE investment; $1.5 million recipient cost-share), Hawaiian Electric Company ($500,000 DOE investment; $500,000 recipient cost-share), and Peak Reliability ($3.9 million DOE investment; $4.8 million recipient cost-share).
