Grid-edge DERMS: An enterprise platform built to manage DERs at scale

A new phase of distributed energy resource management is on the horizon. A dramatic increase in the uptake of DERs is playing out in parallel with utilities setting aggressive decarbonization goals. Instead of shaping energy generation to meet demand, utilities are starting to think about shaping demand to meet renewable generation. To proactively take advantage…

Using managed charging to mitigate EV peak load

The rapid adoption of EVs has the potential to create both challenges and opportunities for utilities. An EV with a daily commuting distance of 25 miles requires as little as 7 to as much as 18 kWh of electricity to recharge each day. Unlike the infrastructure that has evolved to refuel vehicles with internal combustion…

Flattening the duck curve through intelligent DER aggregation

Over the past decade, residential solar installations have been growing at a rapid rate. This trend has been driven by the confluence of favorable regulatory environments, investment incentives at both the federal and state levels, and increasing cost-competitiveness of solar technology. As a variable and intermittent generation resource, solar production is not tied or responsive…

Managing grid-edge DERs for grid reliability

Legacy DERMS are unlikely to have the ability to respond to the proliferation and complexity of customer-sited DERs. Those DERMS, which were derived from early ADMS or low-tech DRMS software, lack the agility and flexibility needed to respond to greater penetration of DERs as the grid evolves. This white paper describes how the growth of…
