This Web discussion will bring together a panel of experts to share their experiences and best practices in selecting the right vendor and solution for a Distributed Energy Resource Management System DERMS.

The growth and adoption of distributed energy resources (DER), renewables, microgrids, and other local energy resources is accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Energy companies are looking for more effective software solutions to help them manage this growth and to operate the grid to better take advantage of these devices. However, the software landscape is in flux with a myriad of solutions that each seem to have a differing view as to what really makes up a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS). You can shift the odds to your favor by adopting leading practices for software selection and laying a solid foundation for the selection through proper selection preparation.
