Is Our Grid Ready to Handle Next Generation Energy at Scale?

Next-generation energy infrastructure is coming online at a nearly unstoppable pace, with everything from EVs, to solar farms, to scaled battery storage, getting fresh federal funding from the Biden administration. As these technologies start to churn through power and add new strain to our existing infrastructure, what do these strains mean for our energy grid? States like Texas, after an already disastrous hit to the energy grid during the infamous 2021 winter storm, are raising an eyebrow at their grid’s capacity to handle this intake of new energy sources.

Andy Bennett, CEO of mPrest, a global vendor of real-time and mission-critical orchestration and optimization software, spoke with us at MarketScale about why utilities, virtual power plant operators and channel partners must come together to explore distributed energy resource management systems, or DERMS, to support massive behind-the-meter integration. He also gave us context on the regulatory pushes underscoring the potential feasibility of DERMSs as a solution to grid reliability and flexibility.
