The GRID DATA Repository

The GRID DATA Repository is a free library of public network models and power systems test data.  It contains a grid data collection from across the utility industry and developed by the grid research community, including models and data that are being created under the ARPA-E GRID DATA Program.

The ARPA-E GRID DATA program is funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to support research in grid network optimization and modernization.

The Repository was developed by GridBright, Inc. as open source software to benefit the power systems and engineering research community.
