Integrated DER Programs for Utilities and Energy Suppliers

Drivers, Barriers, Case Studies, and Market Forecasts

Integrated distributed energy resources (IDER) programs are a topic of growing interest. Several utility-led pilot programs have explored the potential of DER, controlled in aggregate, to provide valuable grid services. IDER programs actively manage energy through the integration and coordination of one or more of the following: energy efficiency, demand response, distributed generation (DG), energy storage, and EVs. The utility does not need to perform this management and coordination. It may also be a combination of grid operator and utility price signals, third-party aggregator control, and customer choice.

Navigant Research breaks IDER into several categories: integrated demand side management (IDSM), bring your own device (BYOD), non-wires alternative (NWA), deregulated IDER, and other IDER. The last two categories respectively cover competitive retail energy suppliers and energy service providers offering IDER, as opposed to regulated utilities, and all other forms of programs utilities are piloting and expanding. Market barriers to IDER exist, and these must be addressed to make larger-scale deployment feasible.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the IDER program market for utilities and energy suppliers. The study examines drivers behind the newly developing business models for IDER as well as implementation challenges. Market forecasts, segmented by program and technology type, extend through 2028 for all world markets. The report also provides recommendations for both utilities and suppliers looking to expand their offerings in the evolving IDER space.
