Track description:

The electric grid is becoming more complex and much of this complexity stems from the rapid rise of distributed energy resources (DERs). To maintain grid reliability and efficiency, grid operators must understand the operational concepts, capabilities and architectural principles related to managing and controlling DER.

The DER management system (DERMS) is emerging as one of the main the technological solution needed to manage the complex grid. In addition, some entities are using virtual power plant platforms to aggregate and control DER.

This track will focus on the latest trends and technologies related to DER management and control.

Featuring sessions of special interest to:

• Electric distribution system operators
• Electric distribution planners
• Resource planners
• Smart grid project managers and engineers
• Technology developers and investors
