Oak Ridge National Laboratory Key Developments

U.S. Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and EPB Begin New Partnership

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Oak Ridge National Laboratory and EPB have announced the beginning of a partnership that will use Chattanoogaâ 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, cybersecurity 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 Chattanoogas 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 systemâ s advanced sensors to improve operations. Researchers plan to examine the benefits of advanced controls and microgrids, 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 systems operations.

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.
