Concept paper due 25 July | Solar Technologies’ Rapid Integration and Validation for Energy Systems (STRIVES)

DOE

The Solar Technologies’ Rapid Integration and Validation for Energy Systems (STRIVES) FOA will fund RD&D projects to improve power systems simulation software tools and demonstrate new business models for distribution systems operations to integrate and optimize the value of inverter-based resources (IBRs) and distributed energy resources (DERs) including solar, wind, energy storage, and other technologies such as buildings and electric vehicles (EVs). Projects funded under this FOA will address near-term and long-term challenges in operating electric power grids with large deployments of solar energy systems and other DERs. This FOA has two topic areas:

Topic Area 1: Robust Experimentation and Advanced Learning for Distribution System Operators: design and perform field demonstrations of distribution system operator models that consider technology development and the roles of non-traditional stakeholders in potential distribution electricity services and markets. Cost share is required: 20% of total project costs for R&D projects and 50% for demonstration and commercialization projects

Topic Area 2: Improved Simulation Tools for Large-Scale IBR Transient and Dynamic Studies: develop and demonstrate software tools and methodologies to improve the ability of power systems engineers to accurately and efficiently model the dynamics of power systems with large amounts of geographically dispersed IBR. 20% cost share of total project costs is required.
