Consumers and businesses today are transforming their relationship with the grid by rapidly adopting behind-the-meter distributed energy resources (DER) such as smart thermostats, electric vehicles, solar inverters, and storage systems. As utilities across the country commit to decarbonization goals, they are turning to DER as a solution to evolving grid management challenges. Utilities can harness the flexibility these assets offer to address system peaks, renewable intermittency, and other impacts on the grid of the clean energy transition. To do so, they need a new class of technology suited for the complexity and scale of behind-the-meter DER: a grid-edge distributed energy management system (DERMS).
Arizona Public Service (APS) has committed to transitioning to 100% clean energy by 2050 and has deployed a grid-edge DERMS to manage a sophisticated behind-the-meter DER portfolio that helps their demand-side management, markets and trading, and distribution operations teams meet various utility objectives. In this webinar, speakers from Guidehouse Insights, APS, and EnergyHub will share how a grid-edge DERMS is critical to enabling utilities to meet grid needs through the clean energy transition.
