News: Use “USB port” to make DER happen

One of the big challenges with DER is making sure all the different power sources line up, that they communicate with one another. Well, check out this news from the folks at SEPA,which showcases a new framework under development by Duke Energy, Pacific Northwest National Lab, Oak Ridge National Labs, National Renewable Energy Lab and several other universities and researchers called OpenFMB. It allows all the different components of DER talk with one another so that you can easily try new components in a “plug and play” fashion. This will be very helpful in piloting and scaling new solutions to manage demand in your area.
