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

Co-led by representatives from Southern California Edison, Duke Energy and ComEd,  the Grid Management Working Group and began conducting meetings in January 2016 with coordination and moderation supplied by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) to harness the best thinking from utility professionals to develop the Distributed Energy Resources Management System (DERMS) Requirements Document.

The goal was to establish baseline requirements that reduce electric utility risks of procuring DERMS by ensuring appropriate functionality and guide industry vendors in their own product development efforts.

Efforts continued in 2018 under the auspices of the DERMs Task Force, which included members from utilities, developers, and solution providers to review and refine the DERMS Requirements Document.

I'm ready. Let's do this!
