The energy industry is in the middle of a transformation driven by the adoption of distributed generation, energy efficiency measures, and prosumer engagement services-in other words, smarter, cleaner, and more localized energy through distributed energy resources (DERs). When utilized effectively, DERs can create benefits for both utilities and their customers. However, the complexity of handling many different types of DERs presents challenges for utilities across functional areas such as planning, operation, and engineering.
Listen in as Hawaiian Electric Company, Accenture, and Siemens take a deeper look at DER trends across the energy industry and how utilities are addressing them. Discussion points include:
- How can utilities take the reins of this transformation and best leverage resources within existing infrastructure and business constraints?
- What steps are utilities taking in areas of high DER penetration to build out their technology strategy?
- How will solutions, such as Advanced Distributed Management Systems (ADMS) and Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS), be deployed and used to manage DERs?
View this webinar to learn how to better build out your utilities' response to growing DER in distribution networks.
