Document Description
The purpose of this project is to develop a Distributed Energy Resource Value Estimation Tool (DER-VET), a publicly available, open-source, micro grid valuation and optimization software tool. DER-VET will combine robust technical analysis with economic optimization to aide in the design of micro grid and distributed energy resource (DER) deployments with maximum benefit to customers and society. This software will be shaped, reviewed, and continuously enhanced by a community of technical users and stakeholders. DER-VET is intended to directly address technical gaps in the present suite of tools used by grid planners and technology developers to redesign and analyze DER in utility grids and micro grids.
