Grid Services, Energy Services Interfaces & Grid Connected Devices

Project Description

Work with industry to define common framework to represent grid services and develop standardized Energy Storage Initiative (ESI) specification to simplify Distributed Energy Resources (DER) integration.

Value Proposition

  • Activating DERs at scale requires simplified interaction with the grid.
  • ESI standard simplifies DER integration, making DER systems more reliable and affordable.
  • Common grid service representations and ESI specification will increase amount and speed of DER integration and reduce overall system costs.

Project Objectives

  • Define common framework to represent grid services
  • Develop standardized ESI specification to simplify DER integration
  • Quantify effect of diverse DER fleets on the bulk power system
