Distributed energy resources (DER) have traditionally been isolated. This paradigm is changing as adoption drivers grow and distribution becomes more evenly allocated. Navigant Research forecasts that installed DER capacity, including distributed generation, energy storage, microgrids, EVs, and demand response (DR), will increase significantly over the next decade. As the roles of stakeholders evolve (from the end customer to the utility and all the way up to policymakers), there are still many questions as to how DER will be optimally managed.
A new wave of technologies developed to manage DER, including DER management systems (DERMSs), presents opportunities and challenges for vendors and utilities. Several important trends affect the market for DERMSs, from baseline technical challenges to a wider discussion around policy and the emergence of new markets and business models for energy and utilities. Incumbent IT/operational technology (OT) vendors, new entrants, and startups have approached product development from different perspectives, creating a diverse landscape of vendors in this highly competitive market.
This Navigant Research ‘Leaderboard’ examines the Strategy and Execution of 16 leading vendors offering DERMSs for DER and grid management solutions. These providers are rated on 12 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; product integration strategy; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product quality and reliability; product portfolio and ecosystem; pricing; and staying power. Using Navigant Research's proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing an objective assessment of their relative strengths and weaknesses in the global DERMS market.
