Deadline Extended: RFI Grid Integration of Solar Energy Systems and Other Inverter-based Resources

Opportunity Title:

Grid Integration of Solar Energy Systems and Other Inverter-based Resources

Funder/Agency:

Solar Energy Technologies Office

Description:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) has issued a request for information (RFI) to better understand the technical challenges and opportunities for grid integration of solar energy systems and other inverter-based resources that include photovoltaics (PV) and energy storage facilities connected to bulk power systems, distribution systems, microgrids, and behind-the-meter systems.

SETO encourages feedback from members of the solar industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, end-user groups, and other relevant organizations related to the cost-effective and reliable integration of solar energy onto the electric grid. Questions in the RFI span six topic areas addressing future scenarios with high levels of inverter-based resources (IBR) and distributed energy resources (DER):

  1. System Planning for High IBR and DER Futures

  2. System Operation for High IBR and DER Futures

  3. System Resilience for High IBR and DER Futures

  4. Cybersecurity for Solar and DER Systems

  5. Enabling Technologies for High IBR and DER Futures – Power Electronics, Communication, Sensing, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning

  6. Other Emerging Topics for High IBR and DER Futures

Feedback provided through this RFI will help SETO identify key challenges, assess technology gaps, determine research needs and priorities, and develop new research, development, and demonstration initiatives to support rapid solar deployment and the smooth transition to a reliable, secure, resilient, and decarbonized grid of the future.
