Never before has a utility demonstrated the ability to manage thousands of front-of-the-meter and behind-the-meter Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), including solar, wind, batteries, and thermal generators to provide reliable and quality energy to its customers.

PXiSE Energy Solutions is providing these capabilities today and leveraging the PI System as part of its solution for the integration and management of utility and customer DER.


This session will unpack Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS):
  • What is it and why it’s the next step in grid management?
  • What is the value of a software-based and highly configurable solution in a fast-changing utility environment?
  • The impacts of real-world use cases for how DERMS are being deployed today at Horizon Power in Western Australia.

Leading the renewable energy transformation with DERMS involves technical capabilities like deploying an IEEE 2030.5 compliant server for control and monitoring of DERs (of which PXiSE is the first company to receive SunSpec certification for). The PXiSE DERMS solution also provides autonomous forecasting, optimization, network modeling, and condition-based scheduling of DER, all configured on a software infrastructure based on the PI System, and capable of integrating with any existing utility system.

This session will cover the key aspects of a complex and comprehensive utility DERMS deployment. Attendees will receive the information they need to consider different aspects of DERMS capabilities and standards.
