Dispatch DER requests for power due to contingency or emergency events.
Address short-term grid imbalances and fluctuations in frequency levels with immediate response to requests for up and down regulation. Track sub-minute fluctuations in system load and correct for unintended changes in generator output.
Lower demand across the portfolio of DERs by responding to a signal from a system operator.

Mitigate usage peaks, control demand at the customer’s site and export power to other homes on the same feeder or transformer.
Inject power into the grid where and when voltage support is needed, often along distribution feeders experiencing solar backflow. Dispatch power automatically based on programmed voltage thresholds to meet network operator requirements.
Store excess solar during the day and service customer load in the evening when solar is no longer producing. Mitigate photovoltaic (PV) backflow and absorb excess PV power on the same feeder by charging from the grid. Provide a shaped dispatch of power as the sun goes down and as seasonal variance affects solar production.
