Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS)

Solution Overview

Widespread adoption and growth of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) creates a challenge for distribution grid operations and presents some unique market and customer participation opportunities for utilities.

DER Management System (DERMS) is a software platform that provides the ability to manage DER assets, as an individual entity or as an Aggregation (consisting of diverse resource mix), and that helps drive multiple value streams from customer value enhancement, distribution grid services, and wholesale market participation (FERC Order 2222).

DERMS plays a crucial role in working with utility ADMS and DER Aggregation Platforms (including third parties) to monitor, forecast, and optimize/ coordinate/ control the utilization of these diverse distributed resources in support of grid ops and market services.

Utilicast can help you with your DERMS adoption lifecycle from Business Case to Roadmap to Implementation and Integration. ​
