The final reports from the DOE EAC are now available

The final reports from the DOE EAC are now available.

Electricity Advisory Committee was created to provide advice to the U.S. Department of Energy in implementing the Energy Policy Act of 2005, executing the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, and modernizing the nation's electricity delivery infrastructure.

The goals of the EAC are to:

- Advise on electricity policy issues pertaining to the Department of Energy.

- Review and make recommendations concerning DOE electricity programs and initiatives.

- Advise DOE on issues related to current and future capacity of the electricity system (generation, transmission and distribution, regionally and nationally).

- Advise on the coordination between DOE and state and regional officials and the private sector on matters affecting electricity supply, demand and reliability.

- Advise on the coordination between Federal, State and utility industry authorities required to cope with supply disruption or other emergencies related to electricity generation and distribution.

The three topics the EAC is addressing in 2008 are electricity supply adequacy, smart grid, and energy storage technologies. Final versions of the reports are available below:
