Building a Better Grid Through Innovation
EDD, with a history of providing electric utilities the tools to adapt to a changing energy landscape, is leading a project with the U.S. Department of Energy that will result in a more stable U.S. electrical grid now and into the future.

The three-year project is named the Faster-than-Real-Time Simulation with Demonstration for Resilient Distributed Energy Resource Integration. The targeted outcome—development of a system for better detection of abnormalities, such as cyberattacks, and coordinate voltage control and grid stability in real time.

Organizations partnering with EDD on the project include PEPCO Holdings, Clean Power Research, Florida State University, Smart Electric Power Alliance, University of Delaware, Dominion Voltage Inc., and KITU Systems.
