September 26, 2013 – The purpose of this announcement is to advance the deployment of production-grade software applications that rely on synchrophasor data to enhance the reliability or improve the economic efficiency of bulk power system planning and operations. The Energy Department announced up to $9 million in funding to facilitate rapid response to abnormal grid conditions.
September 10, 2013 – The Electric Vehicle-Enabling Technology Demonstration Program seeks research and demonstration proposals that demonstrate new technologies and approaches to accelerate the market adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and make PEV infrastructure easier to use and more economically viable in New York State. Total available funding is $2 million. All, some, or none, of the available funding may be allocated. In funding this solicitation, NYSERDA seeks to advance technologies, strategies, business models, behavioral approaches, and policy ideas that support the expansion of the PEV market and PEV industry in New York State.
August 2, 2013 – The participating planning authorities of the Eastern Interconnection Planning Collaborative: ISO-New England, New York ISO, Ontario’s Independent Electric System Operator, Midcontinent ISO, PJM Interconnection, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, are issuing an RFP to conduct a Gas-Electric System Interface Study for Portions of the North American Eastern Interconnection. This study, which is being conducted under U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant OE-DOE0000343, has four main objectives: 1) baseline the existing natural gas and electric system infrastructure; 2) evaluate the capability of the natural gas system to meet the needs of the electric system; 3) identify contingencies on the natural gas system that could adversely affect electric system reliability and vice versa; and 4) evaluate the costs/benefits of, and issues associated with generator dual-fuel capability.
June 10, 2013 – The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) announces the availability of up to $10 million in funds to support research and engineering studies, product development and demonstration projects that improve the reliability, efficiency, quality, and overall performance of the electric power delivery system in New York State.
