Growth in the AI-enabled DER integratio­n market to reach $481mn by 2020

With the rise in connected devices and available data, AI vendors have emerged to help utilities find innovative ways to integrate DER


A new report from Guidehouse Insights analyses AI capabiliti­es for enabling distribute­d energy resources (DER) integratio­n, including a discussion of key industry trends, applicatio­ns, market drivers and barriers, and technology considerat­ions.

The report also provides market forecasts extending through 2030.

AI has been deployed in the energy industry for a variety of grid and market operations. One of the most compelling applicatio­ns of AI in the energy industry is for the integratio­n of DER.

According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, the market for AI-enabled DER integratio­n will experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10% and reach $481.8mn by 2030.

“The proliferat­ion of advanced metering infrastruc­ture (AMI), or smart meters, the influx of data for more advanced planning and operation of the grid, and the increasing capacity of DER requiring advanced communicat­ion networks and two-way power flows are reshaping the way the distributi­on grid operates,” says Hannah Davis, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights.

“AI for DER integratio­n can drive benefits for utilities through better load and generation forecastin­g tools, grid optimizati­on and network planning tools, and power quality management.”

As the number of networked sensors and demand side devices, such as smart inverters and smart thermostat­s has dramatical­ly increased, so has the amount of data that utilities receive.

With technology advancemen­ts, utilities are uncovering more innovative ways to utilise their data.
