Smarter Grid Solutions (SGS), a Mitsubishi Electric group company, is excited to announce its collaboration with Generac Grid Services (GGS) to offer the most comprehensive utility Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) solution in the market.

Today, utilities are challenged with operating an increasingly complex distribution network while reacting to concurrent innovation and growth behind-the-meter. The SGS and GGS collaboration will help utilities generate operational and economic value in both distribution optimization and distributed asset control. This decision was made to bring industry leading expertise together and ultimately provide a one-stop-shop for utilities as they navigate the much-welcomed innovation within the grid.

GGS’s Concerto platform will be offered as an integrated module of SGS’s Strata Grid Utility DERMS platform to coordinate responses from DER Aggregators. Further, the system extends SGS’s ability to support customers in aggregating and coordinating across DER and Demand Response (DR) programs by rapidly expanding the portfolio of pre-integrated DR program providers. This brings visibility and forecasting of DER availability into the control room and enables dynamic grouping of assets from disparate programs in targeted locational responses.
