The Power of Many
Today, we are experiencing a gigantic global transformation of the energy world. Renewable energy is on the rise. A large number of small, distributed energy resources (DERs) is about to replace conventional power plants. And they have a strong support: the Virtual Power Plant. The VPP not only allows to aggregate thousands of electricity producers, consumers, and storage units. By intelligently controlling their feed-in and consumption, their power and flexibility can be valorized on different markets.

We have been using the storage system to increase our self-consumption for almost five years, but the last 18 months have been crazy.

Owner of a biogas plant
Since the first minute, working with Next Kraftwerke has been a close cooperation with a lot of valuable information. From our perspective, this is an excellent business relationship.
We have a very trusting business relationship that has enabled us to reduce our electricity procurement costs without investing in a trade department of our own.
Windkraft Simonsfeld AG
We decided to place the energy produced on different markets to protect ourselves from an array of different scenarios.
In addition to the balancing energy revenues, the individual control reserve activations can also be used without any problems as test runs for our backup power generators. In doing so, we win twice by integrating our generators into the Virtual Power Plant.
CEO Stadtwerk Haßfurt
With the Virtual Power Plant, we can produce hydrogen cheaply using energy from a nearby wind farm and at the same time supply secondary reserve to the Transmission System Operator.
The cooperation with Next Kraftwerke already ran smoothly in the first phase of the cooperation. This concerned both the joint design of our marketing concept and the individual contract design.
We looked at a variety of trading houses, but only Next Kraftwerke was able to provide us with a transparent and pragmatic contract which also allows us to profit from the positive profile of our PV plants.
Holzwerke Weinzierl GmbH
Of course, we have an interest in operating our wood-fired power plants with optimum economic efficiency.
