Last Tuesday, 14 April 2020, the control energy market in Germany was in an exceptionally strong state of flux: A fluctuation of almost 5 GW resulted in large secondary reserve call-offs by all four German transmission system operators. A good amount of this reserve was covered by over 1.200 decentralised plants in the virtual power plant of Energy2market (e2m), thus demonstrating their system relevance.
In cooperation with Deutsche Post AG and its subsidiary StreetScooter GmbH, Energy2market GmbH (e2m) has developed options with a view to optimising power procurement and the use of energy at selected logistics sites with e-vehicles. The results of the TRADE EV research project, which is subsidised by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and scheduled to end in February 2020, were presented by e2m together with the project partners, Deutsche Post, StreetScooter and SAP, at the E-world in Essen.
With a view to promoting the growth path of Energy2market GmbH (e2m) in the international business of market access services and the development of virtual power plants (VPP) the shareholders have held intensive talks with financially strong strategic partners in recent weeks. As a result, the majority shareholder Trailstone UK Ltd. and the founding shareholders have decided to sell 100 percent of the shares in the company to the French EDF Group, one of the leading utility companies in Europe.
The shareholders of Energy2market GmbH (e2m) have approved a capital increase strengthening the company’s equity base and fulfilling one of the requirements for safeguarding the trading service provider’s growth strategy over the next years.
In late June 2018, a delegation of US senators, professors and business representatives met with leading representatives of GDGE (the association of German green power generators) and Energy2market GmbH (e2m) to discuss the latest technologies and developments in generating and trading biogas.
Energy2market GmbH (e2m), a leader in aggregated energy trading throughout Europe, today announced its strategic partnership with Swytch, a blockchain-based renewable energy data and incentive platform, for a Proof of Concept test. Beginning in January 2018, e2m has been testing the efficacy of the Swytch blockchain platform across its portfolio of assets in Germany, equivalent to approximately 3.5Gw of solar, wind, hydro, and biogas energy capacity. The deal affirms the ability of Swytch's technology to function at industry-leading scale as it pioneers an entirely new blockchain protocol built to verify and track renewable energy production.
