Guidehouse Insights estimates that DERMS and VPP hybrid platform revenues around the world will average a compound annual growth rate of 35% by 2030


BOULDER, Col., November 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / – A new report from Guide perspectives Identifies key value streams of Hybrid Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) and Virtual Power Plant (VPP) offerings and provides a review of demand drivers, barriers and market trends through 2030.

The growing deployment of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and renewable energy is transforming the grid at a rapid pace, with utilities and grid operators relying on smart software for optimization. DERMS and VPP are two types of intelligent software platforms that can optimize the grid to serve grid operators, utilities and energy consumers. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, DERMS and VPP hybrid platform revenues around the world are expected to grow faster each year than implementation spend, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35% on average .

“Individually, each platform provides an important function to help utilities and network operators serve customers reliably,” says Dan Power, Research Analyst at Guidehouse Insights. “However, as the energy sector continues to transition, a single hybrid platform capable of balancing multiple grid priorities should become essential.”

The management of the DER is the main driver of the transition of the global energy market. However, this transition has been costly and large-scale technology deployments are complex. In addition, the availability of alternative software platforms that perform well with current DER adoption levels is also a barrier to the hybrid DERMS and VPP platform market, according to the report.

The report, Market data: DERMS and VPP hybrid platforms, identifies the main value streams of hybrid DERMS and VPP offers. Its main objectives are to identify and assess the opportunities and challenges facing the industry and to assess the likely growth in regions of the world. Guidehouse Insights also provides a review of demand drivers, barriers, and market trends. All major regions of the world are included and the period under review extends to 2030.
