Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: DERMS Providers

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 10 Grid DERMS and 15 Grid-Edge DERMS Platform Providers

The market for distributed energy resources (DER) management systems, or DERMS, is rapidly evolving as DER adoption continues to increase worldwide. Market operators and regulators are working to adjust frameworks and regulations to further integrate DER aggregations into wholesale market activities. Meanwhile, distribution utilities and grid operators are looking to take advantage of the operational benefits of aggregated DER. Historically, Guidehouse Insights has distinguished between DERMS platforms and virtual power plant platforms, with the latter providing a market interface module and generally not being grid aware. However, this version of the Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard seeks to streamline the classification nomenclature used for systems managing DER.

This Leaderboard considers companies that provide a software platform to third parties that is capable of intelligently managing, controlling, and optimizing a portfolio of aggregated DER such that the portfolio can provide grid services either through wholesale markets or directly to a distribution utility. The DERMS space has seen different paths to development, leading to additional uncertainty around DERMS platform definitions. To acknowledge the different use cases for each platform type, this report includes separate grids and rankings for grid DERMS providers and grid-edge DERMS providers.

This Leaderboard examines the strategy and execution of 10 leading vendors offering grid DERMS platforms and 15 leading vendors offering grid-edge DERMS platforms. The providers are rated on 12 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners/acquisitions/investors; product integration strategy; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; platform performance; platform quality and reliability; project portfolio; pricing; and staying power. Using Guidehouse Insights’ 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 platform market.
