DER Siting and Optimization Tool for California Poster

Prototype modeling framework for integrated distributed resource planning and optimization, able to identify Distributed Energy Resources (DER) adoption patterns, microgrid sites, and evaluate DER impacts on the distribution and transmission grid. Combines key capabilities from national labs to address gap in DER modeling tools by linking behind-the-meter DER modeling with Transmission & Distribution co-simulation and visualization. Provides first step towards detailed holistic system-wide modeling of DER impacts and benefits.
