National Academy of Sciences highlights Smart Wires as ARPA-E success story

Smart Wires was an original recipient of Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) grant funding, which led to the first deployment of power flow control technology on the 161 kV system at the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Since then, leading utilities across several continents – including Southern Company, Pacific Gas & Electric, and Minnesota Power in the United States, EirGrid and RTE in Europe, and TransGrid and Western Power in Australia – have joined the ranks of innovators implementing modular power flow control solutions on their networks.

PG&E and Smart Wires: Leveraging Innovation for a Clean Energy Future

Pacific Gas & Electric President Geisha Williams discusses innovation partnerships and references the collaboration between Smart Wires and her regulated transmission utility:

“And on the grid itself, we’re working with a company called Smart Wires to try out a plug-and-play control module that can be attached to our existing transmission and distribution lines, allowing operators to fine tune the amount of energy they carry, dialing it up and down in response to dynamic fluctuations in demand and supply. That offers the potential to integrate greater contributions from renewable resources, as well as adjust for shifts in load across the network which might otherwise require constructing power lines in new places — a far more costly alternative.”  Read the full article here »
