Energy Management System
Group NIRE’s team has developed an Energy Management system to monitor and control distributed energy resources (DERS) at their field site.
This system was created to assist in managing the Network Optimized Distributed Energy Resources (NODES) program that Group NIRE was awarded through ARPA-E in partnership with DNV GL. Group NIRE has developed its own Internet of Energy platform to monitor local utilities, data acquisition systems, and manage DERS within Group NIRE’s test facility.
This energy management system now successfully manages the interconnection of over 100 DERS.
