Australia’s current distribution grids are managing to provide reliable power; however, in certain circumstances they are being pushed to new limits. With DER Orchestration solutions, energy players can optimize their grids by using all the energy currently available. It’s about getting the most out of the installed assets and leveraging DG/DERs. Otherwise, it’s potentially just throwing money at new assets without completely using the operational assets.
Rather than taking on a massive evolution, DER Orchestration software solutions positively impact the grid as the market rapidly shifts to include prosumers, aggregation, peer-to-peer trading, and microgrids.
There’s little doubt that over the next five years we’re going to see a big play in storage and renewable generation. The battery storage, or other innovative storage solutions, on the immediate horizon will only sweeten the situation by allowing utilities to optimize even further, generating electricity at low cost and using DER Orchestration solutions to more efficiently manage load.
It’s exciting that we’re using the grid and technology to help society move forward. GE’s solution is presenting new opportunities for utilities, entrepreneurs, and others with that spirit of innovation.
With our significant investment in the energy market, we’re always increasing our products’ capabilities across the space. Our Digital Energy portfolio offers more than single solutions that solve particular problems. We are orchestrating our technologies in substations, edge devices, renewable generation infrastructure, EMS, ADMS, GIS, mobility, and more to bring complete awareness and control to the utilities. We bring a depth of knowledge and experience that shows our customers we have technology that’s going to keep up with ongoing disruption in the energy sector—and the spirit to innovate and explore.
