Generac Grid Services is thrilled to be at the top of Guidehouse Insights’ 2022 “Leaderboard: DERMS Vendors” and the only vendor able to deliver the full range of DERMS distribution system optimization capabilities in a single platform. Generac Grid Services’ Concerto™ distributed energy resource (DER) orchestration platform continues its position as a leading virtual power plant (VPP) and Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) platform, having also received top marks in the previous DERMS Leaderboard release.
As part of the Leaderboard process, Guidehouse assesses several critical success factors in profiling, rating and ranking the world’s leading DERMS providers. In past years, we were named a market leader as Enbala. Now as Generac Grid Services — and a part of the Generac family of companies — we are bigger and stronger and able to achieve even higher scores on factors like market reach and staying power. No other vendor scored as high as Generac Grid Services when it comes to delivering a complete and total solution from a single provider.
This year’s report recognizes the Concerto platforms’ vast array of unique use cases and avenues to new customer types and business models. As a DERMS platform, Concerto is designed to evolve with utilities’ and other customers’ changing needs as more distributed resources interconnect to the grid and require rapid, precise interventions to improve reliability. As the only company providing a complete DERMS solution in a single platform, we remain a single point of contact for our customers’ optimization and other needs, streamlining integration with utility systems.
Additionally, the Guidehouse Leaderboard notes that Generac Grid Services provides customers with a wide array of solutions encompassing hardware, software and program enablement services. This means we can help utilities both identify existing DER devices and grow their future installed base; the company’s campaign to produce and integrate with Smart Grid Ready devices helps utility and customer-owned devices provision grid services from the moment they are installed and powered on.
Generac Grid Services is honored to have received such high scores in Guidehouse’s 2022 Leaderboard, and we look forward to growing and expanding our global customer base.
