This report describes a framework for evaluating distributed energy resource (DER) candidates to participate as an aggregated pool of controllable energy devices to meet local and system-wide needs of the power system. The framework includes a definition of system goals, the relevant material that characterizes a DER candidate, the rules for evaluating candidate participants, and a process that utilizes this information to produce a list of the most attractive candidates.
