Announcement - Research call to DOE National Labs due 3 May

The US Department of Energy is soliciting proposals from DOE National Laboratories in four key areas, some of which will require computing expertise. Proposals for this Research Call are due 3 May 2010 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Each three-year award will go to a single National Lab (the “lead lab”) to organize and coordinate all activities required to execute the scope of work. The lead lab will be expected to provide these services to DOE through combinations of its own staff and collaborators selected by the lead lab in consultation with DOE.

Paraphrased quotes regarding the computational component of some, but not all of the research areas, are highlighted below.

Area of Interest 1: Interregional Electricity Reliability Issue Assessment and Analysis

The changing composition of the generation fleet and the loads comprising the US electric power system requires detailed review, assessment, and analysis to anticipate and address emerging reliability challenges – before they become manifest in large scale blackouts and other reliability problems.

This will involve data collection and model validation for interconnection frequency response, and model development and validation for fault-induced delayed voltage recovery.

Area of Interest 2: New Technologies, Electricity Demand, and Utility Resource Plans

    Western Interconnection, Project 1 - New Technologies and Electricity Demand

    Many new technologies have recently appeared or are emerging that will significantly expand the implications of demand-side resources for purposes of transmission planning. The purpose of this work is to significantly improve the knowledge base pertaining to these resources and the treatment of these resources in the models used for long-term infrastructure analysis and planning.

Area of Interest 3 – Water/Energy Nexus

DOE wishes to support the development of an integrated energy-water Decision Support System that will enable planners in the Western and Texas Interconnections to analyze the potential implications of water stress for transmission and resource planning. This would include a regional water stress calculator consisting of a water demand projection model and a water availability model.

The DOE expects to award between four and six awards to various lead labs, together totaling about $19.5 million.
