The European Distributed Energy Resources Laboratories (in short DERlab) is an association connecting over thirty research institutes conducting applied research in the field of Energy Storage, Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and Smart Grids in Europe and the U.S. with various activities in research, networking and awareness-raising, the association fosters the preconditions of pre-competitive and pre-normative research for a more environmentally sustainable power generation in the future. The European member institutes are accompanied by two institutes (Sandia and NREL) in the U.S. and therefore DERlab facilitates knowledge transfer and networking also at international level. DERlab hosts several databases that are accessible via EIRIE platform such as:

  • DER and Smart Grid Research Infrastructure database
  • Regulations, Standards and Codes database
