Department of Energy (DOE) regarding their participation in the event. IEEE PES invited the DOE to organize six ISGT panel sessions featuring presentations and results from 17 smart grid projects from the Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) and Smart Grid Demonstration Programs (SGDP), both supported by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. In addition, the DOE helped organize a panel that explored future smart grid initiatives—“New Frontiers of Smart Grid”—which set the stage for the ISGT conference and encouraged participants to discuss new opportunities and emerging challenges.
Many of the DOE’s observations on the ISGT panels and sessions focused on several U.S. -based utilities and their successes with installing smart grid technologies. Smart Grid News - Grid Modernization and the Smart Grid. SmartGrid.gov: Home.
