With over 5,500 generating plants and more than 3,600 MW (as of 2020) of marketed production capacity, e2m is one of Europe’s leading energy aggregators and an excellent medium-sized and independent electricity trading company.
New opportunities for new energies
In recent years, government funding systems and market incentives have resulted in thousands of smaller generation plants being created at all grid levels . These are resulting in a significant decentralisation of energy generation with a far broader spectrum of asset owners. They are frequently not the traditional operators of large-scale power plants but investment funds, cooperatives and industrial and private power consumers for whom power trading is not a core business.
Connecting generators to the market
For this reason e2m has developed solutions to provide plant monitoring, market access for both power and flexibility, as well as the price-controlled optimisation of power plant deployment. To do this, we connect the individual plants to our Virtual Power Plant which, in turn, is directly connected to the trading, reserve and frequency energy markets. Bundling of the generator volumes in this way enables efficient market access and creates attractive additional revenue opportunities for our customers.
Combined power of more than 4,500 generators
At present, more than 4,500 generators and other facilities with an installed total capacity of approx. 3,700 MW are connected to the Virtual Power Plant. This includes wind and PV plants, as well as combined heat and power plants (CHP), hydroelectric power stations and CCGT.
