Eaton has announced that it has acknowledged a $3 million grant by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office for pursuing research and development initiatives that enable more widespread adoption of solar power and energy storage, as per the sources.
Eaton’s research is going to focus on developing a real-time controller for behind-the-meter distributed energy resources and loads, such as solar generation and battery storage. The project will integrate data from smart meters to enable enhanced grid services that improve reliability in distribution systems with high solar penetration, the official sources add.
According to Ramanath Ramakrishnan, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Eaton, “We’re delighted to be supporting the energy transition in the United States, driving solar research alongside leading thinkers in academia and industry.” “Our strategic partnership with SETO is central to our efforts to advance intelligent power management innovation. We also very much appreciate the support of Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development. Thanks to this grant, we and our research partners can help make tomorrow’s energy systems more reliable, efficient, safe and sustainable,” he further states.
Eaton’s partners in this research project include: The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, Pecan Street, Provo City Power and Commonwealth Edison, the sources confirm.
