United States

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act allocates $3.4 billion in Smart Grid Investment Grant funds towards large and small Smart Grid projects. It is designed to quickly implement various aspects of smart grid technology into the nation’s existing electric grid infrastructure. The Department of Energy (DOE) has highlighted several specific funding areas: Equipment Manufacturing, Customer Systems, Advanced Metering Infrastructure, Electric Distributions Systems, Electric Transmission Systems, and Integrated and Crosscutting Systems. The grants will cover up to 50% of the cost of a given project. The DOE is allocating up to $3.4 billion towards two types of grant projects: smaller and larger. Smaller projects would have the federal share range from $300,000 to $20,000,000 while larger projects would range from $20,000,000 to $200,000,000. About 25% of SGIG funding will go towards smaller projects; the remaining 75% will be devoted to larger projects.


The European Commission Joint Research Centre, in 2011, put together the first comprehensive list of Smart Grid projects in Europe. The information is gathered by the Smart Electricity Systems team at the JRC. The Smart Electricity Systems team performs independent scientific research and acts as in-house scientific consultant for EU policy-making actors, with particular focus on the on-going transformations towards smart electricity systems. The Smart Electricity Systems team is expanding its set of analytic and experimental capabilities to provide scientific and technical advice in support of EU policies relating to power transmission/distribution systems, taking into account advances in smart and super grid concepts.
