Request for Information: Flexible Distributed Energy Resources and Control Platforms
The Department of Public Service seeks your input on how to commit $5 million to advance flexible distribution energy resources and related control platforms.
Responses to this RFI will inform the design and implementation of a program to support Vermont’s capability to deploy and use grid-interactive flexible distributed energy resources (DERs). This includes technologies such as flexible loads, energy storage, and control platforms to manage and optimize those resources. Specifically, we seek input on how to best structure the $5 million program to optimize the use of grid-interactive flexible resources and control platforms, all while ensuring equity for small businesses, low-income Vermonters, and frontline/impacted communities, and while complying with ARPA guidance.
