As solar energy booms— over one million solar installations are already connected to the grid, and two million are expected by 2018— the energy industry faces the unique challenge of integrating and optimizing solar energy into the electricity grid (energy.gov). With such a challenge comes the need for collaboration between solar and the nation’s over 3,000 electric utility companies.
These partnerships support a vast network of research and development, contributing to the DOE’s Grid Modernization Initiative (GMI) and SUSTAINABLE and HOLISTIC INTEGRATION of ENERGY STORAGE and SOLAR PV (SHINES) programs, which aim to efficiently and optimally integrate solar energy into the grid.
Department of Energy is Making Big Partnership Moves
Another initiative which aims to benefit solar is the SunShot Initiative, which focuses on lowering the cost of solar electricity to make it as affordable and accessible as electricity sources. The goal of these initiatives is to improve the existing infrastructure, integrate solar to it’s full capacity, and, in doing so, lower the overall cost of solar to make it more universally used. In addition to these large-scale goals, SunShot hopes to make solar energy more accessible to all communities by addressing issues such as long project times, limited solar access and education, and informing consumers of solar’s value once fully integrated to it’s potential in the grid.
