IEEE’s Energy Practice provides a focal point for information and assistance across the wide range of IEEE standards and related initiatives associated with the topic of Energy, as well as linkage to IEEE Societies, programs and conferences of interest to the Energy community. IEEE expertise, programs, products and services are very broad and numerous in the field of Energy – our website attempts to categorize information as simply as possible, and will update with new and additional information on a monthly basis.


How to Manage Distributed Energy Resources More Effectively

IEEE 2030.11™ Provides Guiding Principles for DER Management Systems and Microgrid Services. Distributed energy resources (DER) is the term used to describe the many types of energy generation and storage technologies that provide electric capacity or energy where it is needed. With smaller outputs than traditional generating resources like centralized power plants, DER systems are often sized to meet the requirements of a particular site. They may be connected to the local electric power grid or distribution system or isolated from it for dedicated use.
