LLNL is applying systems engineering, high-performance computing, and data analytics to enabling the secure, resilient, reliable, and sustainable design and operation of the nation's infrastructure systems.
See our Community Energy Solutions for more information about how partnering with LLNL can bring solutions to community energy needs.
The Laboratory is part of the DOE Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium, which is conducting critical research and development in advanced storage systems, clean energy integration, standards and test procedures, and a number of other key grid modernization areas. LLNL has a leadership role on the following projects:
Supporting the Office of Electricity’s (OE) Advanced Grid Modeling (AGM) program in advancing technologies in the areas of the 1) Data Management and Analytics, 2) Mathematical Methods and Computation, 3) Models and Simulation, and 4) Operator Tools and Decision Support, to help address the challenges in power grid planning and operation.
Creating advanced, distributed data analytics capability to provide visibility and controllability to distribution grid and building operators.
Creating an integrated grid management framework akin to having an autopilot system for the grid's interconnected components.
Creating a flexible and scalable open-source co-simulation framework that can simulate regional and interconnection-scale power system behaviors at unprecedented levels of detail and speed.
Developing advanced analytics on operational technology cyber data in order to detect complex cyber threats in the power grid.
Validating and demonstrating, at scale, a distributed-energy-resources-driven mitigation, blackstart, and restoration strategy for distribution feeders.
