Climate change is transforming the energy market as communities, cities, states, and various industries are striving to reduce their dependency on carbon energy sources. Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) have proven to be effective solutions to help meet these challenges, but the complexity of choosing the right solution to scale for customers has been a challenge. Data transparency and security is vital for meeting this challenge as it equips the customer with the right information and tools they need to contribute to the evolution of this ever-changing energy landscape.
However, unlocking the value of data can only be achieved with effective and easy-to-use tools that simplify the complexities surrounding DERs and their interconnectivity.
Join William McEvoy, Industry Principal for Distributed Energy Resources, and David Thomason, Industry Principal for Power Generation, as they present the analytics surrounding DERs, and how a data infrastructure makes it easy for customers and their entire communities, to engage and help solve the world’s most significant energy challenges.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How successful integration of DER technology with their data sources help visualize a holistic overview of the environmental, technological, and financial goals.
- New data efficiency strategies help reduce the need for fossil-based energy resources and speed up utility system upgrades
- Best practices allowing utilities to securely interact with grid edge devices such as batteries, solar inverters, and EV chargers
- New data methods that help support and stabilize the electrical grid, while allowing a transaction system to track, settle, and manage compliance with the market
