• DOE Solar Utility Networks: Replicable Innovations in Solar Energy (SUNRISE)

    EPRI recently completed the DOE-funded SUNRISE project. This two-year project was designed to help utilities assess the strategic planning implications of increased levels of utility scale and rooftop solar power. EPRI worked with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and Southern Company, and its affiliates, to apply a set of innovative planning and operational simulation tools, developed under our core research on renewable integration in distribution and bulk systems, to these two Southeast utilities.
