It is now clear that Distribution Utilities, DNOs, DSOs, DNSPs and DSPs are experiencing the fast-growing decentralization of energy in unprecedented ways. The coming years will present significant operational and customer interconnection challenges to distribution operators.

Distribution Utilities and DSOs need solutions to enable customer DER interconnections, avoid or defer grid capital expenditure, maximize regulatory incentives and de-risk the rapid growth of DER while maximizing operational efficiency and grid resilience.

Strata Grid is Smarter Grid Solutions’ response these new and expanding requirements, and the leading utility DERMS solution on the market.  

Strata Grid seamlessly integrates, controls and optimizes DER of any type and size, in any location, so that wires utilities can monitor and manage DER and operate the wires securely and efficiently while delivering what their customers need and the wider societal transition to net zero carbon electricity.
