Are you trying to find a solution that can cost-effectively solve both the grid challenges faced by utilities today and scale to solve new challenges as they emerge? We have good news. Technology exists today that offers utilities visibility into their customer’s distributed energy resources (DERs) and the opportunity to safely monitor and control them—without needing to fully invest in a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS).
The solution is a DER management and communication platform, which is an ideal starting point for utilities looking to gain visibility, insights, and a better understanding of how controlling customer devices can positively impact the grid. This white paper outlines the advantages such a platform provides, including DER management, forecasting and scheduling, and suggests how it can be the first step on a scalable path to grid optimization.
