Scope of Smart Grid & EV

Funding Opportunities


Smart Grid


“… Smart grid modernization encompasses the
electric transmission and
distribution infrastructure

that interconnects
large generation

at one end and
consumers’ electric loads

as the other end, as well as
all components and
systems in between
, including
distributed energy resources
.”



Transportation Electrification (EVs and Charging)


“… Accelerate the
development and production of various electric drive
vehicle systems

to
substantially reduce petroleum consumption
.”


Support the President’s goal to Get One Million Plug
-
In Hybrid Cars (PHEVs) on
the Road by 2015.



Who can participate?


Utilities, system operators, power marketers


Vehicle mfrs, charging equipment mfrs, other technology suppliers


National labs may only subcontract

Goals of Smart Grid &EV


Funding Opportunities


Public benefits DOE is aiming for:


Jobs, jobs, jobs


Reduced emissions


Reduced oil consumption


Enhanced cost
-
effectiveness


Improved demand
-
side management


Flexibility to integrate renewable and distributed
energy resources


Improved reliability

Today’s Grid


Limitations


Consumers lack information


Utilities lack mechanisms to influence
consumer behavior


Limited clean power


Limited energy storage

PNW Smart Grid Demo

Getting Ourselves Organized


Goals


Lead the nation in developing a clean, robust grid


Grow smart grid technology companies in
Washington state



BPA Plans


Smart Grid Test Bed RFI


$3.25B borrowing authority

PNW Smart Grid Demo

Getting Ourselves Organized


How do we make the NW smart grid demonstration a
success?


Broad participation by utilities and technology companies


Learn how to migrate quickly from demo ($.6B)


deployment
($3.4B)



How do we integrate all of the pieces of a NW solution?


DSM, wind, storage, EVs, etc.


Open standards and protocols


Regulatory mechanisms (tariffs, rate recovery, etc.)



Create a
PNW Smart Grid
forum to pursue
this
opportunity?
