Successful VPP Implementation in Poland
e2m successfully concludes RES project together with dena
Since the autumn of 2015, Energy2markt (e2m) has successfully implemented its tried and tested as well as highly innovative Virtual Power Plant (VPP) on the Polish energy market - with the support of the German Energy Agency (dena). This project was now officially concluded in late November.
As early as in December 2015, e2m initiated this ground-breaking project together with dena, the transmission system operator 50 Hertz and Polish and German market participants at an opening event at the German-Polish chamber of commerce in Warsaw. Right from the outset, the focus was on optimising existing decentralised generation plants and increasing their flexibility.
An online portal adjusted to the Polish market requirements – which can e.g. be used to check the current generation data or the availability of the plant – is at the heart of this project. In the framework of its 2015/2017 Renewable Energy Solutions programme, dena supported this transnational cooperation. This project is in line with the dena-RES programme objective of establishing German technologies at important sites in third countries in order to use market opportunities there.
Following the connection of a biogas plant in Grzmiąca, Poland, to the virtual power plant, the project was officially concluded. The strategic importance of this project for the increasing integration of decentralised generation plants into the European power market and for stabilising the grids was underlined by the fact that Andreas Kuhlman, dena’s Chief Executive, attended the event in person.
The dena RES Project Poland is part of the worldwide dena Renewable Energy Solutions Programme coordinated by Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) – the German Energy Agency – and co-financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) within the German Energy Solutions Initiative.
