Modular flexible and scalable platform of the IEMS designed and architected in a way that fulfill the customer needs based on the specific challenges. All the following microservices with single unified log in could be utilized as a separate module and microservice based on the use case:



IEMS end-to-end enterprise DERMS have 6 core components. By integrating these components, an enterprise DERMS can provide a comprehensive solution that fulfills the use cases of all stakeholders. Six components of the IEMS Enterprise DERMS are:

1- Data management and Predictive Analytics: This microservice is a critical component of modern energy management systems. It enables energy providers to collect and analyze vast amounts of data from DERs and other sources such as smart meters (AMI), solar PVs, weather providers, EV charging points, and even EVs to gain insights into energy usage patterns, system performance, and customer behavior. By leveraging advanced data analytics techniques, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, we have developed highly accurate predictions and models that can improve operational efficiency. Data management and predictive analytics also enable energy consumption optimization, reduce waste and carbon footprint, helping to lower costs, improve grid stability and reliability, enable measurement and verification (M&V) of any energy efficiency programs and increase customer satisfaction.

2- DER control and optimization for T&D operations: This component allows utilities to control and optimize the operation of DERs in real-time, based on grid topology and constrains and market signals our fast AI-based Optimal Power Flow (OPF) engine enable power utility (PU) to monitor and control DERs, such as solar panels, wind turbines, EV charging points, and battery storage systems, in real-time to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. By utilizing advanced control algorithms through OPF engine, utilities could maximize the use of DERs to match the grid demand and reduce grid congestion and stress, improving system reliability, stability and reducing costs. DER control and optimization also play critical roles in enabling the integration of electric vehicles (EVs) into the grid, allowing energy providers to manage EV charging (G2V) and discharging (V2G) in a way that optimizes energy use and minimizes stress on the grid. Overall, DER control and optimization are essential tools for energy providers looking to improve T&D operations, increase grid flexibility, and provide reliable and cost-effective energy services to customers.



4- Market operations (Advance Market Management System): Market ops is a key component of modern DERMS solution. This component enables DER owners to monetize their assets while providing the grid operator flexibility to manage the capacity of the grid. Advance Market Management System (AMMS) of IEMS enterprise solution enable integration between utility, the AMMS enables utilities to optimize their DERs’ economic value by participating in energy markets, enabling more efficient dispatch of DERs, managing Demand Responses (DRs) and maximizing revenue streams. AMMS not only can provide significant value to Power Utilities (PUs) by enabling them to monitor the performance of aggregators and Virtual Powe Plants (VPPs) in delivering the required load reduction, and schedule their activation based on market conditions and grid constraints but also allows aggregators, VPPs, and demand response providers respond quickly to market conditions, achieve higher returns on their DER investments, reduce operational costs, and improve the overall performance of their portfolios.


5- Customer operations: This component provides tools for utilities to engage with their customers and communicate with their customers regarding their energy usage and preferences. It provides utilities with the ability to offer customers dynamic pricing options, such as time-of-use rates, which can incentivize customers to shift their energy consumption to off-peak hours and reduce demand during peak periods. This helps to reduce stress on the grid and improve grid stability. Additionally, thorough measurement and verification (M&V) of energy efficiency programs could engage customers for higher energy efficiency participation. Additionally, it can provide customers with insights into their real-time energy usage patterns, allowing them to make informed decisions on how to manage their energy consumption and reduce their energy bills and participate in demand response programs, and manage their DERs, such as rooftop solar panels and energy storage systems. This feature is very important for power utilities to increase their customers’ satisfaction.


6- Asset operations: With the growth of DERs, it becomes increasingly challenging for utilities to manage and maintain these assets while managing the grid’s infrastructure asset health. This component, as a module within DERMS, provides utilities with a centralized platform to monitor and manage grid assets like wires and transformers and schedule maintenance activities as well as monitor and manage DER assets, including solar panels, batteries, and electric vehicles, ensuring that they are operating efficiently and effectively. By optimizing asset performance, DERMS can help utilities to maximize the value of their DER investments, improve asset utilization, and reduce operational costs. Additionally, DERMS can provide utilities with real-time visibility into their DER assets, allowing them to respond quickly to any issues or anomalies and minimize downtime.
