What is DER and why is it gaining in popularity?

The take up of Distributed Energy Resources, or DER, is evolving rapidly. The Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap (ENTR), a joint publication by Energy Networks Australia and the CSIRO, projected that over 40 per cent of energy customers will use DER by 2027. By 2050, that figure will grow to more than 60 per cent. DER uses generation systems and distribution resources to create decentralised energy systems. DER participants can sell power back to the grid or are compensated for allowing their storage systems to help stabilise the grid, especially during peak.
