Last year saw major energy markets on both sides of the Atlantic take decisive steps toward integrating assets like DERs more holistically.
In July, the European Commission released details of its clean energy strategic priority
, including making it easier for customers to interact with the energy market as well as supporting digital energy services, including smart meters for homes and smart chargers for electric vehicles. Two months later in September, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in the United States issued FERC Order 2222
, which unlocks the game-changing ability for DERs to participate in wholesale electric markets on a level playing field with traditional energy assets.
“Our goal at Energy Web is to bring every ISO and RTO in the U.S. onto the EW-DOS stack in order to fully unlock the potential of DERs and accelerate the energy transition,” wrote Jesse Morris, CCO, Energy Web.
Meanwhile, Energy Web was already forging ahead with strategic partnerships with grid operators in Europe and beyond.
