Adapt to the Complexities of a Decentralized Grid

With the rapid growth of distributed energy resources (DERs), grid operators must not only manage generation and distribution but also energy storage and a complex mix of electricity loads. Effective DER planning and simulation require real-time data from more assets than ever, and limited visibility into asset-level availability and capacity makes seamless DER integration a challenge. Additionally, congestion management issues amplified by DERs can cause grid instability, overvoltage, and reverse power flows.

To protect grid reliability and realize the full potential of DERs, utilities and grid operators need an end-to-end platform that unifies DER management across every piece of the energy value chain, from grid optimization and market orchestration to flexibility management and prosumer engagement.

The Grid-to-Prosumer DERMS Difference

This unified approach to DERMS technology helps utilities and other market participants unlock many new capabilities for the first time. Two illustrative examples include:

Apartment Building Solar Panels
Leveraging accurate distribution-line feeder forecasts to bolster local reliability by tapping available DERs such as rooftop solar PV, batteries, smart thermostats, or EV chargers to be optimized and then dispatched to meet local flexibility needs.
Electric Bus Supercharging Station
Performing system hosting capacity analysis for EV charging depots to develop customized solutions that serve the needs of both the EV depots and the utility with tools such as a flexible service connection.

Simplify DER Orchestration. Maximize Flexibility.

Grid-to-Prosumer DERMS delivers a wide range of orchestration, flexibility, and customer benefits for utilities and grid operators, paving the way for a smarter, more resilient grid.
