With more than 2,700 MW of installed distributed generation (DG) capacity and a growth rate of approximately one new solar customer every seven minutes, PG&E is at the forefront of DER adoption in North America.

Challenge

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has a strategic objective to maintain reliable operation of the distribution network with the increase in distributed energy resources (DER) such as solar photovoltaic (PV) and battery storage on the grid. 

Solution

PG&E will install GE’s DERM software to demonstrate look-ahead capabilities and optimization of a portfolio of DERs, achieved through real-time monitoring and coordinated operation of DER assets such as storage and distributed solar PV generation. The platform will use communications based on IEEE 2030.5 standards to enable coordination with third-party DER aggregators.

Results

This digital solution will help PG&E optimize the grid for better management and increased efficiency.
