TECHTALK: ADMS Controlled DERMs in a Net-Zero Affordable Housing Community

In an innovative collaboration, Holy Cross Energy (HCE) has partnered with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) and Survalent to implement and validate a real-time control and optimization architecture for Distributed Energy Resources (DERs). HCE has demonstrated that DERs can be paired with flexible loads to optimize power flow and enhance system operation optics, paving the way for new service offerings for our members and a more flexible and resilient grid.
