At this conference, attendees will learn about and see demonstrations of the state-of-the-art GridWave solutions developed through the SEGIS initiative, which was launched by the DOE and Sandia to develop advancements that maintain or improve power quality and reliability while increasing PV solar technologies contributions and economic value to the U.
The SEGIS contract has enabled us to go from the lab to the field with new and advanced innovations that will revolutionize the electric supply industry.
Department of Energy will discuss the progress the SEGIS
program has made toward its mission to 1) integrate high penetrations of distributed photovoltaic power onto the grid, and 2) place utility-scale solar in a better position to satisfy even the most aggressive Renewable Portfolio Standards.
Through our partnership with the DOE, Petra Solar has embraced the DOE's SEGIS
vision to enhance grid stability with the next generation of Smart Energy Modules," said Joe DeLuca, Vice President of Development and Product Management.
developments have been extremely well received by our utility partners and customers," said Dr.
program will create several manufacturing and engineering "green" jobs in New Jersey.
Petra Solar won the SEGIS
Stage 3 (Toward Commercialization) contract, for about $3 million, in a competitive process that drew some of the most forward-thinking, technologically advanced solar electric experts in the country.
And we have been working continuously under the auspices of the US Government-funded SEGIS
program to improve the economics and resolve the technical issues associated with bringing utility-scale solar power onto the grid.
