Research Encyclopedia of DERMS Functionalities The distributed energy resource landscape is continuously expanding and broadening its reach. Technology that started as mainly niche rooftop solar installations has now expanded to include heat pump water heaters, intelligent thermostats, battery energy storage, intelligent vehicle charging, and other devices. Increasingly, utilities have opted to deploy a software solution that can interact with these grid-edge technologies called a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS). Evaluating, selecting, and justifying DERMS remains challenging due to the high cost of the solution and complexities in integrations, cybersecurity, and implementation timelines. SEPA and a task force of 12 utilities used insights from 11 DERMS providers to produce a comprehensive list of DERMS capabilities categorized in this encyclopedia. Utilities and regulators can use this encyclopedia to create a common language around DERMS and better understand the full capabilities of DERMS systems.
