Our Virtual Power Plant for the Energy Transition

In our Virtual Power Plant, we connect thousands of power producers such as biogas, wind or solar power plants and power consumers. By intelligently controlling their feed-in and consumption, we are able to valorize their power and flexibility at different markets. With a total capacity of more than 3,500 megawatts, we also help balancing frequency fluctuations of the power grid. Together with all particpants, we are shaping the energy landscape of the future – with a reliable power production from 100 % sustainable energy sources.

How our Virtual Power Plant works

Knowledge

How the Virtual Power Plant works

The frequency of the power grid is permanently fluctuating. One of the main reasons is the volatile feed-in of solar and wind power. With our Virtual Power Plant we can minimize this fluctuations. Imagine a cloudy day with little sunshine for solar parks: our aggregated biogas plants pitch in and increase their production.
