Distributed Energy Resources Test Facility Virtual Tour
The Distributed Energy Resources Test Facility (DERTF), located at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, was designed to assist the distributed power industry in the development and testing of distributed power systems. Researchers use state-of-the-art laboratories and outdoor test beds to characterize the performance and reliability of distributed power systems, support standards development, and investigate emerging and complex system integration issues.
The DERTF contains a variety of distributed generation and storage, interconnection and testing, and electric power systems equipment. To learn more about the facility and its capabilities, click on the pieces of equipment in the diagram.
