If there is one common theme across global utilities who’re responsible for network operations, there is no doubt it cuts across the complexity & integration aspects of DER’s (as we know them- Distributed Energy Resources). In my view, these resources are not evenly distributed, hence Variable Resources of Energy (VRE) or Intermittent Energy Resources (IER) is better description. Nevertheless, the concept remains same and we, as industry, must work towards solving this prestigious & high value puzzle for future networks!
There is strategic approach already taken by few global utilities to define, discuss, build roadmap, create value streams, operating models, integration, architectures & digital elements to deliver network & customer benefits. Amongst all initiatives, one thing that underpins almost all maturity stages- no matter whether you’re just exploring the DER’s as new concept or have already got advanced transactive energy state, which is nothing but the “Data”.
