GE Digital has launched a new version of its DER Orchestration software to enable utilities to manage Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in an end-to-end manner via flexible deployment options ranging from Edge to Cloud. DERs are either electricity producing or storing resources or controllable loads connected to a distribution system.

E said that DER Orchestration 2,0 provides operators with the tools to recognise developing situations and enable them to act quickly, orchestrating flexibility across the grid for both utility and non-utility DERs, while unlocking new revenue streams.

PPL Electric Utilities in the USA is using the DER Orchestration solution, and EDP Distribuicão is testing it in Portugal under the ‘InterGrid’ European Commission funded project.

GE Digital said that DER Orchestration 2.0 addresses two key grid challenges: intermittency and dispersion. It said that the system enables operators to anticipate problems by processing historical data and explanatory variables to generate forecasts of load and intermittent generation, as well as identify location, severity, and timing of potential reliability issues.
