Virtual Power Plant Manager

A virtual power plant for your smart grid

Pool the flexible approaches offered by your distributed energy resources for a wealth of use cases.

Why use the Virtual Power Plant Manager?

Virtual power plants (VPPs) make it possible to intelligently control the distributed generation and consumption of power in smart grids.

Connect many distributed resources easily

Connect your distributed energy resources to pool their collective flexibility in a virtual power plant. Doing so is quick and straightforward in our next-generation VPP.

One platform for many use cases

Do you want to take part in energy trading? Stabilize your grid? Manage microgrids or districts? Our platform can foster your energy market business.

Flexibly optimize facilities at any time

Distibuted energy resources pools are optimized at short intervals, allowing you to adjust power generation and consumption to your business model – flexibly.

Minimize expansion of the grid

Make use of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for your grid. First analyze the line voltage data, then move loads to where there is available grid capacity. Plan maintenance and optimize your grid costs.

How can you balance distributed power generation and power consumption?

Different market players pursue different optimization strategies.

Use our Virtual Power Plant to optimize grid technology and energy trading.

The energy industry is changing. Consumers are becoming producers who feed the energy they produce locally into medium- and low-voltage grids.

The corresponding metamorphosis of power distribution networks into smart grids calls for a flexible and intelligent software solution that can manage distributed facilities.

The Virtual Power Plant Manager software platform combines distributed power facilities and their collective flexibility to make virtual power plants.

In turn, you can use such a virtual power plant to make optimizations based on economic or engineering criteria, depending on your business model.
