Our Virtual Power Plant
Control room software for distributed energy resources
What is actually a Virtual Power Plant? Our video explains in 90 seconds how the software connects decentralized units to a single controllable portfolio which can be efficiently integrated into electricity markets and grids.
emsys VPP is a pioneer in the development of Virtual Power Plants and is one of the world's leading suppliers today. Our sophisticated software monitors and remote-controls in real-time distributed energy resources with a total capacity of several gigawatts, pulling maximum value from their consumption and generation on power markets and for a smart grid management. The Virtual Power Plant digitally connects renewable and conventional energy sources as well as various types of storage systems and demand-side resources. Thus we turn distributed energy resources into a single power pool whose generation you can flexibly adjust to grid requirements or trade profitably on international spot, intraday and balancing power markets. In addition, the Virtual Power Plant covers the new grid management (Redispatch 2.0) processes with a focus on the role of the dispatcher.
Power traders, aggregators, energy providers and grid operators already control thousands of distributed energy resources with our trend-setting technology. Our Virtual Power Plant is used in many international markets and can be flexibly adapted to the requirements of electricity markets, users and existing IT infrastructure.
We are your partner for setting up your Virtual Power Plant
We provide you with a customized all-in-one solution: We support you in all steps to build your individual Virtual Power Plant, from plant connection to remote control and trading of the power generated from your portfolio.
We make sure that all the necessary plant data are integrated into your Virtual Power Plant: real-time data and availability of the plants, wind and solar power forecasts, consumption data and electricity market data. As a leading provider of power forecasts, our partner company energy & meteo systems predicts the power schedules for wind and solar parks which we integrate into the Virtual Power Plant. You capture all fundamental events – production and consumption processes as well as power forecasts – at a glance and can concentrate fully on managing your power plants.
Since our technology works as a Software-as-a-Service solution, there is no need for your own IT infrastructure. emsys VPP configures your Virtual Power Plant according to your requirements and, if required, our technical 24/7 support also takes over the hosting and operation. With our vast market and IT experience we support you personally in all questions regarding the integration, control and marketing of renewable energies.
