what is der?

Distributed Energy
Resources: A How-to Guide

If you are looking for ways to solve problems such as high energy costs or low electric power reliability, distributed energy resources (DER) could be the solution you’re seeking.

What are DERs?

DERs are small-scale, decentralized energy-generating or energy-storage technologies that are often located close to where energy is used.DER systems can usually be sized to meet the particular needs of the facility. DERs include technologies such as solar panels, energy storages, batteries, and other systems that generate or store energy.

How are DER systems used?

DERs help balance electricity use, support the main power grid, and provide backup power during outages. They play a key role in using clean energy, making the grid more reliable, and even allowing communities to generate their own power.

How do you know if DER systems are the right choice for your facility?

Several economic and environmental factors make it worthwhile to consider DER.Several factors contribute to this, including the high costs of electric energy and fuel, along with the increasing environmental concerns in recent years.Uncertain fuel supplies and the increasing potential for disruptions in electricity service are prompting us to look for alternatives to traditional energy providers.


Discover the enduring benefits of distributed energy resources

Reduce Costs

DER installation cuts operational costs by generating affordable, on-site renewable energy. This minimizes dependence on conventional power sources, leading to consistent savings and financial resiliency.

Reduce Emissions

Integrating DERs significantly reduces a buildings carbon footprint. Clean energy sources contribute to environmental sustainability, meeting regulations and attracting environmentally conscious investors and tenants.

Maximize Returns

DER adoption enhances property value and competitiveness. Cost savings and efficiency gains positively impact net operating income, while sustainability investments attract tenants and investors, maximizing overall returns.


Investing in DERs ensures REITs remain resilient amid evolving regulations and market demands. Proactive adoption of clean energy solutions demonstrates adaptability, positioning REITs for long-term success in a changing real estate landscape.
