GridEdge Networks is a smart grid technology company that enables grid integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER). The company’s mission is to remove DER deployment roadblocks and help state regulators and policy makers achieve their clean energy goals.
A major roadblock today, especially in high penetration areas, is the DER interconnection bottleneck. We aim to solve this problem with a new approach called flexible interconnection. GridEdge developed a turnkey system solution named DERCOM that enables DER flexible interconnections and grid services.
DERCOM increases hosting capacity of existing lines and substations by using intelligent software controls. It reduces cost and time of interconnection by avoiding or delaying costly hardware build outs. DERCOM enables deployment of more DER, faster and at a lower cost.
DERCOM is a modular system based on the IEEE 1547-2018 and 1547.1-2020 interconnection standards. It provides a distributed solution to a distributed grid.
