At this stage of development of the Toolkit, and through this Notice, the Department of Commerce invites comment to identify the most commonly requested ‘‘use cases,’’ requested by electric utilities. Smart grid use cases should be limited to those applications that can be addressed by transmission, distribution, and energy storage related technologies and services. Examples of use cases include, but are not limited to, the following: Arbitrage, distribution upgrades due to wind/solar, curtailment minimization, frequency regulation, improved customer engagement, nontechnical loss reduction, outage detection, and peak demand reduction. Because input received will be publicly available upon request, businesses or individuals responding to this notice should not include any business confidential.
