(IS-2014-69) The Integrated Grid
This paper is the first phase in a larger Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) project aimed at charting the transformation to the Integrated Grid. Also under consideration will be new business practices based on technologies, systems, and the potential for customers to become more active participants in the power system. Such information can support prudent, cost-effective investment in grid modernization, and the integration of DER to enable energy efficiency, more responsive demand, and the management of variable generation such as wind and solar.
