The Evolving DERMS Landscape

As distributed energy resources (DERs) continue to gain traction with both energy providers and their customers, monitoring and managing flexibility has become a mission-critical activity. Distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS) are platforms that provide a wide range of tools to intelligently manage and dispatch aggregated portfolios of DERs.

DERMS can support both front-of-meter (FTM) / grid DER and behind-the-meter (BTM) / edge DER management activities. In the past, grid and edge DERs have often been managed using individual solutions that aren’t connected to each other. However, as the DER landscape matures, DERMS are evolving to become transparent, end-to-end solutions that connect the control room to the living room.
