 annual DER capacity will surpass traditional forms of generation 2:1 in the next decade

Is this saying total DER capacity will surpass traditional generation capacity by that amount, or just the growth in those markets over the next decade?

Yes, just the growth. The grid will add 2:1 DER-to-Central generation.

In the article you talk about two new waves in digitization of the energy system: blockchain and transactive energy. Blockchain is still evolving and across industry verticals for vast testing and usage. Transactive energy is a bit more conceptual although it appears to have been discussed as early as 2015. Are you aware of any utilities talking about or developing controls for transactive energy or would this have to come from a national regulatory level?

Andy, I enjoyed your article on managing DER and the perspective on DERMS.  Do you think utlities are looking for one packaged DERM solution or are they expecting to integrate several solutions into a working complete DERMS system?
