Deploying Advanced Grid Technology

JSET is advancing the clean energy transition by educating policy makers, regulators, and transmission system executives of the benefits of grid enhancing technologies that can increase the renewable energy hosting capacity of regional power grids more quickly and at a fraction of the cost of adding new transmission capacity. JSET supports the deployment of US-developed grid enhancing technology through a unique pre-feasibility study mechanism that shares the cost of early technical studies with vendors and host utilities.

Grid Enhancing Technology (GET) Initiative

In an effort to provide the region with U.S.-developed technology that will increase the renewable energy absorptive capacity of the regional power grid, JSET has launched the Grid Enhancing Technology (GET) Initiative. Through this initiative, transmission system operators and regulators across Europe and Eurasia will partner with U.S. equipment manufacturers and software companies to reduce technical and regulatory impediments to deploying cutting-edge smart grid technology. Grid enhancing technology promises to increase the region’s renewable energy absorptive capacity and cross-border transmission capacity at a fraction of the cost and time compared to building new infrastructure.
