Unlocking the Queue with Grid-Enhancing Technologies

This report was prepared for the WATT (Working for Advanced Transmission Technologies) Coalition with support from GridLab, EDF Renewables North America, NextEra Energy Resources, and Duke Energy Renewables. Read more

The Benefits of Innovative Grid Technologies

Long-distance transmission of electrical energy has increased significantly over the past decades and is expected to increase further. This development is driven by the rising electricity demand of electrifying the sectors heating, cooling and transport as well as the rapidly growing share of renewable energy power generation, which is often installed at long distances from load centers.

Grid-Enhancing Technologies: A Case Study on Ratepayer Impact

A modern grid requires modern infrastructure, including new devices enabled by digital technology or simply new paths for electricity to flow. Grid-enhancing technologies (GETs) maximize the transmission of electricity across the existing system through a family of technologies that include sensors, power flow control devices, and analytical tools.

Building a Better Grid: How Grid-Enhancing Technologies Complement Transmission Buildouts

The U.S. energy industry is going through a massive transition, partially driven by decarbonization initiatives that significantly increase renewable generation resources. The preferred locations for many of these new resources are often in remote areas far from consumption. The emergence of clusters of these remote resources inevitably leads to the need for more transmission. Read more
