  • 1. Recovery Act Opportunities for Smart Grid Andrew G. Campbell Advisor to Commissioner Rachelle Chong California Public Utilities Commission Smart Grid Symposium April 21, 2009 1
  • 2. Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 Title XIII – Smart Grid, SEC. 1301. Statement of Policy on Modernization of Electricity Grid: It is the policy of the United States to support the modernization of the Nation's electricity transmission and distribution system to maintain a reliable and secure electricity infrastructure that can meet future demand growth and to achieve each of the following, which together characterize a Smart Grid:…(see Appendix) 2
  • 3. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 $4.5 Billion – Smart Grid Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment For expenses necessary for electricity delivery and energy reliability activities to modernize the electric grid, including: demand responsive equipment, enhance security and reliability of the energy infrastructure, energy storage research, development, demonstration and deployment, and facilitate recovery from disruptions to the energy supply, and for implementation of programs authorized under title XIII of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (42 U.S.C. 17381 et seq.) 3

  • 7. Five Technologies to Look for in Smart Grid Projects • Integrated communications, connecting components to open architecture for real-time information and control, allowing every part of the grid to both ‘talk’ and ‘listen’ • Sensing and measurement technologies, to support faster and more accurate response such as remote monitoring, time-of-use pricing and demand-side management • Advanced components, to apply the latest research in superconductivity, storage, power electronics and diagnostics • Advanced control methods, to monitor essential components, enabling rapid diagnosis and precise solutions appropriate to any event • Improved interfaces and decision support, to amplify human decision-making, transforming grid operators and managers quite literally into visionaries when it come to seeing into their systems 7 Source: DOE
  • 8. APPENDIX 8
  • 9. Statement of Policy on Modernization of Electricity Grid 1. Increased use of digital information and controls technology to improve reliability, security, and efficiency of the electric grid. 2. Dynamic optimization of grid operations and resources, with full cyber-security. 3. Deployment and integration of distributed resources and generation, including renewable resources. 4. Development and incorporation of demand response, demand-side resources, and energy-efficiency resources. 5. Deployment of `smart' technologies (real-time, automated, interactive technologies that optimize the physical operation of appliances and consumer devices) for metering, communications concerning grid operations and status, and distribution automation. 9
  • 10. Statement of Policy on Modernization of Electricity Grid. (Cont.) 6. Integration of `smart' appliances and consumer devices. 7. Deployment and integration of advanced electricity storage and peak-shaving technologies, including plug- in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, and thermal- storage air conditioning. 8. Provision to consumers of timely information and control options. 9. Development of standards for communication and interoperability of appliances and equipment connected to the electric grid, including the infrastructure serving the grid. 10.Identification and lowering of unreasonable or unnecessary barriers to adoption of smart grid technologies, practices, and services. 10
