Next-Gen Grid Architecture: A grid coordination primer

Grid coordination is the operational alignment of assets to provide electricity delivery. Although the grid has always relied upon effective coordination, it has become a higher priority issue for electricity distribution because of the rise of distribution-connected distributed energy resources (DER) such as solar, batteries and EVs (electric vehicles), that are not owned or directly controlled by a utility. Some theories for resolving these DER coordination issues are being discussed but few rigorous models or formulas exist. Grid architecture addresses grid coordination from a structural perspective using a methodology built upon a firm mathematical foundation.

Accessing national electricity rates is key to optimizing energy management programs

Electricity costs are a major factor in today's business landscape -- whether you are running a hospital, operating a retail store, maintain a commercial office building or managing an industrial facility. Commercial and Industrial (C&I) organizations in the U.S. spend an estimated $130 billion on electricity every year. In order to analyze and optimize electricity costs, it is essential for energy managers to be able to accurately and conveniently obtain electricity rates.
