|North American DER Management Systems 2017: Market Evolution, Competitive Analysis and Forecast|
|Published: July 18, 2017||Content info:||
For decades, distribution utilities have taken on the role of owning, operating and maintaining distribution grid assets to earn a regulated profit. Today, however, customers are driving a vast increase in the amount of distributed energy resources (DERs) such as solar and energy storage.
These customer-sited DERs create risk the industry must manage to maintain safe and reliable electricity. Effective management of DERs through technology and utility planning also provide financial and operational benefits for utilities, wholesale markets, and customers, incentivizing the evolution of this developing market.
Current software-based platforms create a siloed, incomplete and point-application technology ecosystem. Future evolution of these "DER management systems," or "DERMS," points toward enabling the continuous management of diverse and dispersed DERs, both individually and in aggregate, to support multiple objectives related to distributed grid operations, end-customer value and market participation.
