|About the Program
ORNL's Electric Transmission
and Distribution (ETD) Program directs the Lab's work for DOE's
new Office of Electricity Delivery
& Energy Reliability (OE). Following the Northeastern Power
Outage of August 14, 2003, the issues to be addressed by this DOE
office have received considerable attention, and their importance
has been underscored.
The ETD Program is responsible for program direction,
technical and business management, and program development for ORNL's
research and development for OE. The OE R&D portfolio includes
- high-temperature superconductivity systems;
- transmission reliability;
- power electronics, sensors and controls for high-voltage
- electricity storage; and
- the integration of this equipment into the transmission
and distribution grid.
