ORNL performs technology research, development, and demonstration in partnership with U.S. industry and universities in support of DOE’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE). The Program’s goal is to help ensure a reliable and secure grid that fully integrates central generation with distributed resources, manages power flows, and meets the nation’s need for increasing electric power. Major research areas are high temperature superconductivity, visualization and controls, energy storage and power electronics, and distributed energy
