Letter from the Community Leader:

Those who helped build and grow the utility sector in the latter decades of the 20th century would likely look at today's power industry and barely recognize it. While their surprise would come from many areas, among the most fundamental shifts has been the rise of Distributed Energy Resources, or DERs, which took generation out of the sole responsibility of central power plants and empowered smaller assets to contribute in unique and beneficial ways.  DERs and distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS) are now fundamental for utilities in the way they have changed the sector and the expectation of their continued evolution, changing how the power industry operates.

As such, Energy Central recognized the importance of dedicating our June Special Issue to this topic,  "Distributed Energy Resources and Management Systems." 

In this Special Issue edition, you'll find the best insights submitted by Energy Central Community Members and professionals in the industry. I hope you take some time to read what they have to say! 

As always, please remember that this publication of the articles and distribution of the Special Issue Newsletter is not the culmination of the discussion; instead, it's just where it starts. I implore you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to ask questions, share your thoughts, and connect with these great contributors. All the authors who submitted articles encourage you to leave comments, questions, and ideas in the comments section to which they can respond.
