1 min read

power gridThe U.S. Energy Department is poised to launch a research grants program to encourage DOE’s national laboratories to build technologies that can help fix the U.S.’ power grid management and cybersecurity problems, EnergyWire reported Tuesday.

Peter Behr writes research proposals are due Wednesday and the department could award nearly 200 million in November to fund chosen projects over the next three years.

The program calls for a single operating plan to facilitate coordination between DOE and 17 department-run laboratories, Behr said.

DOE also seeks to strengthen cybersecurity across the utility supply chain, provide operators with tools to manage grids in the event of an emergency and integrate clean energy and smart technology into power networks through the initiative, according to the report.
