DER Solutions for Cooperatives

New Whitepaper 

"What is a DERMS and how can we utilize one?"

Primer_DevicesMockup (1)

A paradigm shift is upon us that includes transitions from fossil generation to renewable and centralized generation to more Distributed Energy Resources (DERs). Operation of these DERs in the most efficient and effective way possible requires an evolution in the software used to manage the grid. This leads us to one of the utility industry’s most commonly used acronyms when speaking about the future operation of the electric grid —  ‘DERMS’. So, what is a DERMS and is this something that our cooperative utility should consider? What value would a DERMS bring to your members? Find all these answers and more in our new whitepaper, available for download today!

With over fifteen years of expertise, we are here to help guide you to your solution.
