ESTAP Webinar: Upgrading Distribution Resilience – A DOE-OE Solicitation
April 7, 2015 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
This webinar highlighted the $3.5 million U.S. DOE Resilient Electricity Delivery Infrastructure (REDI) Initiative. Through this solicitation, the DOE Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability will support the deployment of Smart Grid and Storage technologies and tools to advance climate preparedness and resiliency. Municipalities are eligible to apply for up to $600,000 for the deployment of industry (commercial and pre-commercial) technologies, and up to $1,000,000 for the deployment of laboratory technologies (those developed at national laboratories). DOE expects to make a total of four to eight awards. This 1 ½ hour webinar featured presentations by DOE officials administering the solicitation, followed by an audience Q&A.
- Ryan Watson, Engineer/Project Manager, National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)
- Dan Ton, Program Manager, Smart Grid Research, Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability, U.S. Department of Energy
- Dr. Imre Gyuk, Program Manager, Energy Storage Research, Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability, U.S. Department of Energy
This webinar was a presentation of the Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership (ESTAP), a federal-state funding and information sharing project that aims to accelerate the deployment of electrical energy storage technologies in the U.S. ESTAP is managed by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) and is supported by the US Department of Energy Office of Electricity and Sandia National Laboratories.
