Virtual Power Plants as a gateway to the European electricity market
Renewables, such as biogas, solar and wind are challenging traditional power generators throughout Europe. At the same time, a substantial number of these renewable generators are too small to operate effectively as part of national or international electricity markets. This is where virtual power plants (VPP) come into play.
Combining the streams from individual and decentralised power generators and intelligent consumers, virtual power plants are serving as a digital connection to the electricity markets.
Our VPP is:
- 100% inhouse Technology
- Highly available, fail-safe and uninterrupted
- Certified since 2015
- Combining over 3.500 decentralized power plants with a generation capacity of four nuclear power plants
Our Goal: VPP as part of an intelligent energy market
To ensure connection to the market, the systems of the power generators are in permanent data exchange with the VPP. Thus, by analyzing, assessing and bundling the generation data of the systems, the VPP is providing our traders with all relevant information to achieve profitable results for the operator along the value chain.
VPP are thus proving to be one of the digital drivers and central building blocks in the ongoing transformation of the electricity market.
