DOE Solar Technologies’ Rapid Integration and Validation for Energy Systems (STRIVES) - Concept Papers Due 07/25; Full Applications Due 10/17; Webinar 06/10

Opportunity Title:

Solar Technologies’ Rapid Integration and Validation for Energy Systems (STRIVES)


Funder/Agency:

Department of Energy (DOE), Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO)


Opportunity Number:

DE-FOA-0003331

 

Description:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) and Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) announced the Solar Technologies’ Rapid Integration and Validation for Energy Systems (STRIVES) funding opportunity, which will provide up to $31 million for research, development, and demonstration projects to improve power systems simulation software tools and demonstrate new business models for distribution systems operations to integrate and optimize the value of inverter-based resources (IBRs) and distributed energy resources including solar generation, wind generation, energy storage, and other technologies such as buildings and electric vehicles.


The large-scale deployment of clean energy technologies is driving a transition to a digitally controlled, decentralized, and distributed electric grid that will require coordination of large numbers of diverse and geographically dispersed assets. New operational tools and methods are needed to coordinate these assets while maintaining a reliable, resilient, and secure electric grid.


The clean energy transition also introduces new stakeholders to electricity generation, transmission, and distribution, which creates opportunities for new organizational models to provide equitable access and participation in electricity markets.


SETO will host an informational webinar on June 10 at 1 p.m. ET to discuss the funding opportunity and the topic areas.
