TVA is developing a smart grid deployment plan for the TVA region that will

  • lead to plans for important applications for the transmission, distribution and consumer systems
  • enable a better understanding of the costs and benefits of these applications
  • resolve questions of technology integration and interoperability between operations and end devices.

A component of the deployment plan is the demonstration of key applications, such as

  • wide-area visualization of power system assets and operating conditions
  • more efficient use of existing transmission paths
  • integration of renewable storage technologies
  • smart asset management using advanced sensing devices
  • engagement of end use consumers in energy efficiency and demand response.

TVA and its partners are exploring a variety of other technologies designed to increase the efficiency of energy use. To learn more about them, see the list at upper right.
