This IDC Energy Insights report outlines the reasons behind the complexity of managing the distribution grid, reviews the capabilities needed to manage distributed energy resources effectively, and helps managers understand how to plan for and evaluate technologies for managing DER. Common capabilities include modeling supply and demand, demand response management, distributed device integration and control, network modeling, and specialized grid modeling for distribution marginal pricing and expected development of new distribution operations functions.
According to Jill Feblowitz, vice president, IDC Energy Insights, "Utilities face rapid growth in the complexity of managing their distribution grid. Utilities will be expected to have the information and operation technology in place to operate the distribution grid. Before pursuing cost recovery, utilities need to perform due diligence on capabilities and supporting technologies that will be safest and most cost effective in operating the grid and participating in new markets."
