On 28th September 2016, a delegation with 25 members from the Indian power exchange IEX visited Energy2market GmbH (e2m). In the framework of a tour of Germany, the high-ranking representatives of the power exchange and other Indian energy companies were informed of the operation of the Virtual Power Plant (VPP) by e2m - which is continuously being developed further.
The European energy markets are becoming increasingly integrated. The principles of market models tried and tested in Germany, such as the market premium and direct marketing of renewable energies, are being adopted by neighbouring countries, e.g. France and Poland. This contributes to the harmonisation of European energy policy.
The aims are ambitious: By 2050, the share of renewable energies (RE) in the power supply is targeted to reach at least 80%. In addition to pure power production, RE will also have to make a significant grid-stabilising contribution as regards control energy. As a result, biogas plants (BGP), which are highly flexible even today, have a central role in ensuring the security of supply.
