The Full DERMs Experience Is Here

Distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS) are a hot topic today because done correctly, these systems can manage everything from a single customer’s hot water heater to a huge substation-sited battery in order to keep electricity flowing smoothly on the grid. Dispatchable renewables, communications systems, situational awareness plus strategies and roadmaps for DERMs deployments are all on the agenda at DTECH.
