According to John Villali, research director, IDC Energy Insights, "As distributed energy resources (DERs) continue to penetrate regional power markets at a rapid pace, utilities are being forced to look at investments in DERMS in order to maintain system reliability and meet the growing demands of their electricity customers. Participants in this study are at an advantage as they are positioning and establishing themselves as the 'ones to watch' in this evolving market. Utilities and vendors should leverage this new report to identify the strategic DERMS partners best suited to support growth in this area."

Key findings of the new report include:

  • The area of DERMS in the utility industry is steadily evolving with niche capabilities and strategies that are developing at different paces in regional markets in North America.
  • There are very few, if any true, end-to-end DERMS product offerings by any one vendor as there are a wide range of services and capabilities and customer needs in the area of DERMS.
  • The current technologies and capabilities in the DERMS market can be applied as an extension of an existing advanced distribution management system (ADMS) geared toward behind-the-meter energy resources and utility-scale renewable energy resources.
