Computational needs of the electric grid of the future

SMART ENERGY INTERNATIONAL | A July 2019 Navigant report on growth of distributed energy resources (DER) annual capacity predicts that we will reach 600GW of total DER capacity in eight years, out of which nearly 250GW will come from distributed solar assets.


Managing grid stability with such a massive influx of these highly variable energy resources is non-trivial. This requires that utilities make significant investment in the ability to effectively and reliably dispatch these resources while maintaining the grid’s transient stability, grid inertia needs, and fault levels.
