The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) of up to $9 million related to synchrophasor technology.

The "Pre-Commercial Synchrophasor Research and Demonstration" FOA targets teams comprising utilities and software developers to create and implement advanced software that would improve the operational reliability of the grid. As a result of the new funds, the DOE says utilities will be able to better detect and head off potential blackouts while improving day-to-day grid reliability and helping with the integration of clean renewable energy sources onto the grid.

The DOE notes this FOA builds on investments made under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that have installed more than 1,000 synchrophasor measurement units across the U.S.

The deadline for submitting applications is Nov. 5. More information is available here.
