GridBright awarded ARPA-E grant

January 15, 2016

GridBright has been awarded a grant from DOE ARPA-E to build a new GRID DATA Repository to support Advanaced Grid Research.

The Department of Energy (DOE) has announced $11 million in funding for seven new projects to test new options for optimal efficiency of the U.S. Electric Grid.

GridBright has been awarded a project to create an interactive and publicly available repository to store power system models, as well as other models developed by the engineering community. This collaborative repository will encourage a more accurate and comprehensive evaluation of emerging grid optimization tools, which will improve grid reliability and security while improving efficiency.
