Title Evaluation of Smart Grid Investment Grant Project Technologies: Distributed Generation.
Publication Date Feb 2012
Media Count 384p
Personal Author B. Vyakaranam R. Singh
Abstract This document is one of a series of five reports commissioned by the United States Department of Energy, Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability. The purpose of these reports is to estimate some of the benefits of deploying technologies similar to those implemented on the Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) projects. Four technical reports cover the various types of technologies deployed in the SGIG projects: distribution automation, demand response, energy storage, and distributed generation. While the results of these reports provide insight into the variation of impacts by technology, feeder composition and region, it should be noted that the actual impacts and benefits of employing specific technologies in individual SGIG projects may vary from these projections. A fifth report in the series examines the benefits of deploying these technologies on a national level. This technical report examines the impacts of distribution automation technologies deployed in the SGIG projects.
