ARPA-E recently announced it is making funding available for a new program. The Generating Realistic Information for Development of Distribution And Transmission Algorithms (GRID DATA) program seeks to fund the development of large-scale, realistic, validated, and open-access electric power system network models (transmission and distribution) that have the detail required for the successful development and testing of transformational power system optimization and control algorithms. The program will also fund the creation of an open-access, self-sustaining repository for the storage, annotation, and curation of these power system models, as well as others generated by the community.
