Our grid is inverting.
Our resources are becoming more variable.
Distributed energy is forcing change, and flexibility is the key to
a grid that is reliable and resilient.

Sustainable Energy Systems

Solar, batteries, wind, biomass, CHP, hydro, process storage… An unprecedented increase in clean, distributed energy resources is enabling a sustainable energy future for our power grids around the world. This is a future that can leverage any asset, anywhere, at any time – and do it at sub-second speeds, with an unlimited ability to scale and with the pinpoint accuracy needed to handle grid services as precise as renewable firming or frequency regulation. These are the keys to a cleaner,
more reliable grid – a grid that’s operated and
maintained in an entirely new way.

Its a Power System Problem

Replacing conventional power stations with sustainable distributed energy resources is tricky because it impacts the delicate balance between power management, voltage stability and power quality. But it can be done – with diverse, decentralized, dynamic DERMS and VPP solutions that support multi-layered flows of energy, information and markets. Lightening fast, adaptable and future proof: these are the hallmarks of a modern grid
that gives electric utilities and grid operators the
heightened level of control and flexibility needed
to manage the technical challenges posed by
an increasingly distributed world.

how we're addressing it

Utilities are expanding from load control-based DR to more complex systems that leverage thousands of distributed assets for precise, highly controllable grid services and a need to handle any asset, any time.
