Dominion Energy, one of the nation’s largest producers and transporters of energy, has partnered with TRC Digital to evaluate, implement and integrate technology to further the utility’s distributed energy goals. TRC Digital will facilitate Dominion Energy’s strategy development and technology execution, allowing Dominion Energy and its customers to accelerate the shift to distributed energy resources (DER) and net carbon reduction.
TRC Digital partners with Dominion Energy to evolve its distributed energy resource strategy
In keeping up with changing customer demands and developing reliable distributed energy technologies, Dominion Energy is implementing measures to meet its commitment to net carbon zero and methane emissions by 2050. Part of this strategy is the development of a wide range of DER business offerings, including solar, storage, distributed generation and electric vehicle charging. Dominion Energy has chosen TRC to assess available technologies and identify those most beneficial for this corporate initiative. TRC’s deep knowledge of digital grid solutions and IT/OT integration will enable Dominion Energy to evaluate and deploy new technologies to ensure greater flexibility and utilization of assets, while delivering consistent, reliable energy to its customers.
“It is important for us to work with companies who not only understand our industry but also emerging technologies that can solve our business challenges,” said Joe Woomer, VP of Grid and Technical Solutions at Dominion Energy. “TRC brings their knowledge of the utility industry as well as technology and integration experience to help us understand each possibility and determine the best fit. Additionally, they will advance data flow requirements and promote standards that expedite our integration efforts. TRC will be an integral part of our effort to secure the best digital technology solutions for Dominion Energy.”
TRC Digital is focused on distributed energy management, highlighting the data and integration requirements for each of the DER use cases, and bringing them together within a single unified energy management framework. The Team is supporting Dominion Energy with the evaluation of technology vendors, design and implementation of integrated DER offerings, and building Dominion Energy’s roadmap to best support its customers. This roadmap will provide Dominion Energy with an action plan for a short- and long-term rollout of its DER portfolio.
“We want to accelerate the use and adoption of distributed energy management technology and solutions to solve client issues in market-leading ways,” said Craig Cavanaugh, Chief Operating Officer for Digital Solutions at TRC. “Dominion Energy wants to understand the changing needs of its customers, and how each energy source can fit into its developing business models. They are looking for a partner to accompany them on this journey and we are excited to be a part of it.”
