U.S. Department of Energy Key Developments

DOE, EPB, ORNL Begin New Partnership

The US Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and EPB announced the beginning of a partnership that will use Chattanooga's smart grid as a living laboratory for testing new energy technologies. Under the new agreement with EPB and DOE, Oak Ridge National Laboratory will apply its technical expertise in such areas as data analytics, control systems, cyber security and high-performance computer modeling to test new smart grid technologies and processes on the electric grid in Chattanooga, allowing EPB to further capitalize on its smart grid investment. Partially funded with $111.5 million in Recovery Act stimulus funds awarded by the Energy Department, EPB has made its distribution system more robust while improving operations with the deployment of smart grid technologies, which allow EPB to provide continued reliable electric service and respond more effectively to severe weather events. In addition to traditional laboratory simulation, testing applied science on Chattanooga's fully operational smart grid will provide real-world understanding about the performance and ideal environments for emerging applications. Advanced analytics and data management will help EPB better leverage the data from its system's advanced sensors to improve operations. Researchers plan to examine the benefits of advanced controls and micro grids, which have the potential for widespread deployment in distributed generation, storage and renewable systems. The collaborators also expect to use high performance computing for modeling and simulation to further broaden understanding of the system's operations. The first project for the Engineering Scholars in Residence will be to write a comprehensive case study about the EPB network. This study can be used as a road map for other utilities with interest in building similar systems as well as a guide for technology development and testing. The organizations will also work together to develop strict protocols for protecting EPB customer privacy and data, ensuring that future testing of technologies does not negatively interfere with EPB's customers' experience. The new partnership was formalized with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding at EPB's headquarters.

Department of Energy Issues Viability Certificate to Majestics Energy Corp

Department of Energy announced that certifications of commercial viability were recently granted to Majestics Energy Corp. for a 40-MW facility within the Cavite Economic Zone, on a site straddling Rosario and General Trias. Majestics Energy is currently negotiating a connection agreement with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines. commercial viability certification allows a company to apply for participation in the government's feed-in tariff (FIT) program. Under the FIT, renewable energy (RE) developers are entitled to 20 years of premium rates for energy dispatched to the grid.
