Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability

June 10, 2012

The
Mission of the Office
of Electricity Delivery and
Energy Reliability
is to lead
national efforts to modernize
the electric grid; enhance
security and reliability of the
infrastructure; and facilitate
recovery from disruptions to
energy supply.

Mission
: Modernize the electric grid and enhance the
reliability of the electric infrastructure by contributing to
the development and implementation of electricity
policy at the Federal and state levels.


Activities
:


Facilitate state and regional electricity policy
development including grid planning, energy efficiency,
renewable energy, demand response, smart grid, and
regional resource planning.


Presidential Permit and Export Authorizations for
international trade in electricity.


Analyses and evaluations in support of policy for
existing and future electricity infrastructure needs.


Staff DOE management as needed on electricity policy.









The program provides technical assistance to states, tribes and regions on electricity
policies, with goal of increasing access to reliable, affordable and sustainable energy
sources.


Is responsible for implementing the transmission provisions of the Energy Policy Act of
2005, and administering the international electricity regulatory program through cross
-
border permitting.


Support expanded analysis of advanced transmission system approaches. Topics may
include:


Design and evaluation of a “hardened” offshore transmission system to facilitate
delivery of electricity to major coastal population centers from offshore, remote
generation facilities.


Evaluation of what effect the transition to a low
-
carbon energy future (wind, solar,
geothermal) will have on the operation and planning of the electric system, especially
the regulatory (electricity policy) perspective.

Research and Development

Focuses:

1. Energy storage:


Focuses on grid
-
scale storage technologies that:



Reduce power disturbances



Improve system flexibility, better incorporating intermittent renewable resources



Reduce generation needed at peak demand

2. Cyber Security:



Addresses vulnerabilities within the Nation’s electricity delivery system to reduce the
risk of energy disruptions due to cyber attacks.

Collaborate with the research community in government, industry and academia to
enhance cybersecurity capabilities.


Leads national efforts to enhance the security of the Nation’s critical energy
infrastructure against all threats and hazards.


Carries out the Department’s Energy Sector
-
Specific Agency responsibilities to protect
the Nation’s critical energy infrastructure and key resources, both domestic energy
resources and global energy dependencies.


The program ensures the reliability, security and resiliency of energy infrastructure by:


coordinating the Department’s emergency preparedness, response and monitoring
activities to provide impact analysis during an event, domestic and international


providing assistance in securing critical energy infrastructure, both physical and
cyber


leading and coordinating technical and policy support for control systems security


collaborating with all levels of government and industry to improve preparedness
and response capabilities and to facilitate a speedy recovery from energy supply
disruptions, thereby reducing the impact of these events

President’s Renewable Energy Goal


10 percent of U.S. electricity needs from renewable sources
by 2012, and 25 percent by 2025



Requires an expanded, modernized, and resilient nationwide
transmission system capable of delivering affordable zero/low
carbon resources



President’s Energy Efficiency Goal: “Deploy Cheapest,
Cleanest Fastest Energy Source”


Focus on ratepayer
-
funded energy efficiency state policies


Plus on other parts of demand
-
side: enabling the customer to
participate through demand response and smart grid



Assisting States


Best assistance to state officials,
on as
-
requested basis
, on
electricity policies



Emphasis on encouraging regional coordination among states





PSA Drivers

Near and Long
-
Term Objectives



Lead Federal interagency collaboration to meet the
President’s renewable electricity goals




Lead development of long
-
term interconnection
-
level
transmission expansion plans




Improve and coordinate regulatory processes for new
transmission facilities




Assist utility industry in its efforts to integrate variable
renewable generation and maintain system reliability




Continue providing nationally
-
recognized high quality
support to State’s on their electricity policies




Conduct analyses in support of policy to achieve the
Nation’s electricity goals



How?



Create new and sustainable relationships
