EV sales and customer-owned distributed energy resources (DERs) are increasing. Though it is suitable for greening the grid, the utilities are looking forward to Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) to mitigate the EV demand and DER-related operational issues while creating new value streams.
Despite all the consumer-driven changes in the utility industry, it is essential to note that the fundamental desire of utility customers has not changed - to minimize their monthly energy bills. This is possible by enabling the customer to exercise control over the most energy-intensive parts of their lives, such as heating their homes or powering their electric vehicles. A utility can effectively enable customers a choice only by implementing advanced distribution management systems (ADMS) and DERMS. Since EVs will almost certainly increase the customer's energy bills, having a DERMS solution that integrates residential EV-charge management systems will be paramount.
