    Pacific Northwest Facility to Study Grid Security, Resilience

    Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been picked as the site of a new national grid energy research facility by the Department of Energy. The proposed project is expected to attract additional funding and researchers to PNNL. The facility would help modernize the nation’s utility grid to make it more resilient, secure, reliant and flexible. Affordable energy storage could help ensure that electricity supplies can recover rapidly if there are malicious attempts to tamper with the grid or if severe weather or natural disasters take down parts of the grid.
