On 17 September 2021, DERlab celebrated its 13th year anniversary!
Having started out from the European IRED Project Cluster for the Integration of Renewable Energies and Distributed Generation as a Network of Excellence, DERlab has grown into an association of leading research institutes and companies worldwide in the field of distributed energy resources equipment and systems since 2008, expanding to 36 members to date. The association has consistently been working towards its main goal of supporting the international harmonisation of the behaviour of grid connected distributed power units by facilitating international discussion of new technology trends.
As we reflect on the last thirteen years, we can see many examples of the DERlab association providing valuable input to pre-standardisation and standards developments, DER technology advances, and systems-level validation techniques.
DERlab is looking forward to continue to contribute to the excellence of our respective infrastructures and partners, to collaborate between members and share its knowledge and experience towards the integration of renewable and distributed energy resources.
