GE Vernova’s Digital business and EnergyHub, pioneers in Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) software, have joined forces to redefine the management of distributed energy resources (DERs) in the rapidly evolving energy landscape. This collaboration encompasses solar, energy storage, electric vehicles, and other key technologies widely adopted in the energy sector.
By melding the grid optimization capabilities of GE Vernova’s GridOS DERMS with EnergyHub’s management and control over an extensive portfolio of grid-edge DERs, this partnership offers a comprehensive and scalable solution, GE Vernova said.
This aims to streamline the management of emerging energy assets for utilities, facilitating the development of large DER aggregations, enhanced load flexibility, increased energy storage capacity, and data-driven decisions that optimize grid performance, ultimately enhancing customer experiences.
“Together, we can empower utilities to unlock the full potential of emerging energy sources within the grid. By adopting our joint solution, utilities can accelerate their grid modernization initiatives today and prepare for the grid of the future,” said Mahesh Sudhakaran, General Manager, Grid Software at GE Vernova’s Digital business.
“By harnessing the power of intelligent DER management and load flexibility, utilities can achieve a more reliable and efficient grid, while also empowering their customers to actively participate in the energy transition,” said Seth Frader-Thompson, EnergyHub CEO.
GridOS DERMS is an enterprise solution empowering utilities to efficiently orchestrate the rapid expansion of DERs. With more than 90 customers and over 127 million managed utility service points globally, GridOS DERMS equips grid operators with a comprehensive suite of modular applications to oversee every aspect of the DER journey.
This ranges from initial integration, visualization, and ongoing operation of control and optimization. Key features include advanced forecasting, robust system violation resolution, real-time DER management and dispatch, and economic optimization through access to wholesale and local services markets.
EnergyHub’s DERMS provides an enterprise-wide platform to build and orchestrate grid-edge DER portfolios. Over 60 utilities use the platform today, managing more than one million DERs and 1.7 GW of dispatchable capacity.
Utilities aiming to enhance their grid service capabilities and maximize the value of their DERs can contact either GE Vernova’s Digital business or EnergyHub to learn more about this groundbreaking partnership.
