DERMS Requirements

Utilities are coming together to standardize the requirements of distributed energy resources management systems (DERMS) for the future. Help shape what those standards look like.

SEPA and the Grid Management Working Group invite you to take a part in shaping the future of DERMS requirements

For almost two years, this utility-only working group has drafted a document that will serve 2 functions:

  1. Help utilities reduce risks of procuring systems that failed to deliver all needed capabilities.
  2. Inform and guide industry vendors in their own product development efforts

A utilities-only working group was created in January 2016. Co-led by representatives from Southern California Edison, Duke Energy and ComEd, SEPA’s Grid Management Working Group now invites new industry participants from utilities and the vendor community to review its working draft Distributed Energy Resources Management Systems (DERMS) Requirements document and submit commentary. Coordination and moderation have been supplied by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA).

Complete the form on this page and you will be able to review the document. In the next few weeks, we will give you the opportunity to respond with comments and ideas to shape the final version of this document for the benefit of all stakeholders.


I'm ready. Let's do this!

To get started, fill out this form. Once we receive your information, we will email you copy of the paper along with instructions to get you started.
