Grid Modernization Research
NREL addresses the challenges of modernizing the electric grid through high-impact research and development in power systems engineering and resource assessment.
The future electric grid must deliver reliable, affordable, and clean electricity to consumers where they want it, when they want it, and how they want it. As part of NREL's energy systems integration activities, grid modernization researchers work with the electricity industry, academia, and other research organizations on strategies to effectively interconnect renewable resources and emerging energy-efficiency technologies with the existing electric power system.
