GE Global Research, GE Energy Consulting, National Grid and Clarkson University Announces Partnership on Research Project to Improve Reliability and Resiliency of Electricity Delivery in Northern New York
Dec 10 14
GE Global Research and GE Energy Consulting, along with National Grid, the Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Clarkson University announced a partnership on a research project to improve the reliability and resiliency of electricity delivery in northern New York. The focus area will be the Village of Potsdam, near the Canadian border, which is prone to ice storms that could damage utility lines and other above-ground power infrastructure. Fueled by a $1.2 million grant from the Department of Energy's Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) and a $300,000 investment from GE, this project will allow for the development of an Enhanced Microgrid Control System (eMCS) designed to be the key element in keeping the town's electricity system up and running for several days should it become disconnected from the main power station. The project will also help utilities, like National Grid, better leverage distributed energy resources (DER), such as solar, hydropower, and thermal, in a microgrid scenario.
