Siemens named a Leader in IDC MarketScape for Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems

Siemens has been positioned in the “Leaders” category in this year’s IDC MarketScape* study on North American Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS) vendors.

Siemens’ Integrated DERMS Solution is aimed at helping utilities visualize, manage and economically optimize distributed energy resources (DER), such as solar photovoltaic power and battery energy storage, on the grid. Siemens’ offering encompasses integrated DER planning, impact analysis, asset enrollment and data management, network optimization, dispatch, settlements and analytics.

The IDC MarketScape study evaluates the forward-looking strategies and current capabilities of vendors serving utilities in North America.

“Our dual-platform approach to DERMS gives utility operators the ability to meet their unique needs which can range from managing demand response focused programs to automated, high speed control of grid scale and consumer-owned DERs,” said Mike Carlson, president of Siemens Digital Grid, North America. “We’re thrilled to be named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape report and believe this is a strong recognition of Siemens’ full life-cycle service offering across consulting, engineering and implementation, coupled with an innate understanding of how grid control technology can help utilities better manage increasing penetration of DERs on their systems.”

Siemens Digital Grid partners with leading utilities and industrial energy consumers worldwide to provide expertise and innovative technologies. In North America, Digital Grid has worked with more than 1,000 energy customers to deliver proven solutions and services that improve operational efficiencies, enhance reliability and resiliency, and empower consumers to better manage their energy use.
