BetterGrids.org has built a public Grid Data Repository, here


It is a
free library
of public grid model data



Supporting research
in grid optimization and reliability



Enabling grid researchers to collaborate and share data



Supported by a community of volunteers led by GridBright



Funded by the DOE ARPA-E


The GRID DATA Repository is a free electronic library of publicly available test data instigated by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to support research in grid optimization and modernization. 


The Repository contains grid data models collected from across the utility industry and developed by the grid research community, including the grid models that are being created under the ARPA-E GRID DATA program focused on Generating Realistic Information for the Development of Distribution and Transmission Algorithms.


The Repository is currently being built by GridBright, Inc. as open source software as part of the ARPA-E GRID DATA program.  It is expected to be released for public use in May 2017. 


The BetterGrids Foundation will provide support for the Repository in a self-funding and self-governing manner through volunteers.   The Foundation is a non-profit organization registered in Delaware.
