Generation

Electricity generation is changing. This change must and can support a resilient power system. Advanced tools and technologies can accelerate emerging generation systems and/or maximize the value of existing generation assets as they provide value to the grid. The grid of the future may coexist with the widespread deployment of dedicated off-grid or smaller scale, potentially modular, generating assets in remote areas or dedicated to specific facilities.

Research within this technical area falls under six main subtopics:

  • Hybrid System Portfolio Operations
  • Micro and Small-Scale Generation and Supporting Technologies
  • Security of Generation, Fuel Supply, and Water Supply
  • Environmental Impacts and Critical Functions
  • Environmental Resiliency
  • Generation Interdependencies
