Proven Solutions

Itron Forecasting

Itron Forecasting

Itron’s Metrix™ solutions are used by the world's largest system operators, including AEMO, for short-term forecast accuracy, reliability, scalability and flexibility. Combined with DER Optimizer, the solution scales to support forecasting at the transformer and NMI level to help utilities effectively manage challenges posed by DER by creating more accurate inputs to the DOE calculation process. Finally, our Metrix solutions also support long-term forecasting and used in conjunction with network planning tools provide a consistent model across short-term and long-term forecasting requirements.

NEM Reform

NEM Reform

Our DER Optimizer technology assists energy retailers, utilities, DNSPs, and aggregators in preparing for NEM Reform. By integrating DER Optimizer, Metrix forecasting solutions, GridQube's state estimation engine, and a market interface, our LV DERMS solution provides visibility of the LV grid to Australian DNSP/DSO operators. This allows aggregators and retailers to capitalize on consumer owned DERs in a marketplace and facilitates emergency solar curtailment in cases of excessive generation. Real-time analytics enables the diversification into DER-based grid services, enhancing reliability, resiliency, engagement and sustainability. Explore our complete range of software APIs, and hardware solutions today.

Featured Use Cases

Turning Behind the Meter DERs into Grid Assets

Turning Behind-the-Meter DERs into Grid Assets​

DER adoption is growing exponentially. The integration of DERs at scale requires the adoption of an array of new and fundamentally different technologies that will significantly alter the utility-customer relationship.​

Forecast Framework for DERs

Distributed energy resource forecasts are critical to the real-time load forecasts that system operators require. Explore the Integrated Energy Forecasting Framework (IEFF) and how this concept has been extended to long-term load forecasting.

Real-time Analytics and Optimization

Real-time Analytics and Optimization

Turning DERs into true grid assets requires real-time visibility and situational awareness of DER operations and grid conditions. Leverage native integrations with Itron’s DI platform and networks to deliver real-time DER analytics and optimization at the edge with latencies that cannot be matched through purely cloud-based solutions.

System Reliability

Supplement your contingency and spinning reserves with firm load curtailment from DERs to ensure system reliability during weather- or event-driven emergencies.

Power distribution lines glowing with energy

Non-wires Alternatives

Use DER control to manage localized congestion on your distribution network and defer significant infrastructure investments and upgrades, increasing the DER hosting capacity without compromising reliability.
