Project Description & Benefits:
In 2016, working with CEATI and a number of utilities in North America, GridBright identified the major impacts on distribution operations when integrating Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), and developed appropriate solutions for each. The solutions range from simple technology upgrades, to more dramatic system architecture and work process changes to support a transforming value chain where customers increasingly produce and sell their own energy. The final 140-page report also provides utilities with a maturity model, a gap assessment framework, and a roadmap to guide DER operations strategies.
“GridBright has deep knowledge of the complex issues that utilities need to address to integrate DER into their operations. They are also meticulous in delivering quality results on-time and on budget.”
