Integrated Grid

EPRI’s Jeffrey Hamel, the executive director of the Power Delivery and Utilization Team, authored the report The Integrated Grid.  The main focus of the report according to Hamel is how DG resources, generation and storage should be integrated together.

The first two phases are:

The Integrated Grid: Realizing the Full Value of Central and Distributed Energy Resources.

The Integrated Grid Phase II: Development of a Benefit-Cost Framework.

“The intent of these papers is to align stakeholders on the main issues while outlining real examples to support open fact-based discussion. Input and review were provided by various stakeholders from the energy sector including utilities, regulatory agencies, equipment suppliers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other interested parties. ”
