Goals and Objectives
All DERs, including Demand Response, are consolidated as a single source through detailed real-time analysis of capability. The performance is based on actual source real-time data, weather, grid performance, etc. The VPP is then used on the grid or presented as a single marketable source in a potential wholesale market.
