Under funding from DOE's SHINES program, Austin Energy is creating a DER management platform that maintains grid reliability while also enabling energy loads to be delivered at the lowest possible costs when there are high penetration levels of distributed PV generation. Austin Energy, Doosan GridTech and their partners will design and install more than 3 megawatts of distributed storage, smart solar inverters, a DER control platform, and other technologies utilizing customer and utility locations and multiple aggregation models. The goal is to demonstrate a DER solution adaptable to any region and market structure that offers a credible pathway to a system levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for solar when augmented by storage and other DER management options. This panel will provide insights on what it takes to deliver on this advanced DER platform and how utilities facing similar scenarios like Austin Energy will benefit from the outcomes of this project.
