Electric Utilities

INCREASE VALUE OF ELECTRIC SERVICE

  • Optimal reliability: Disturbance mitigation; active frequency & voltage stabilization; improve SAIDI, SAIFI, MAIFI
  • More renewables: Reduce problems associated with intermittency
  • Comprehensive DER integration and management beyond traditional DERMS: Optimally manage the safe & reliable integration of DERs addressing the increased distribution complexity

REDUCE ELECTRIC RATES

  • Increase asset utilization: Allow assets to serve multiple objectives; economic battery deployment; load management, reduce line losses
  • Reduce opex: Displace components of expensive SCADA system upgrades/new installs; allow fossil fuel generators to run at optimal heat rates

REDUCE RISK

  • Address policy & market risks: Maintain electric system mandated performance requirements under grid conditions with little spinning inertia and highly intermittent distributed resources
  • System optionality: Modular, scalable solution allowing simple expansions and/or reconfigurations as policies and markets evolve
