Our company

Virtual Power Plant Operator & Power Trader

We operate one of Europe’s largest Virtual Power Plants. From our central control platform, we connect power-producing assets from renewable sources such as biogas, wind, and solar with commercial and industrial power consumers and power-storage systems. The resulting tight-knit network benefits everyone involved and the power grid as a whole.

Hendrik Sämisch & Jochen Schwill, Founders & CEOs of Next Kraftwerke
“We are certain that the demand for power in Germany can be completely covered with renewable energies by 2050. As we pursue this goal, we think in terms of bits and watts: By harnessing the possibilities of digitalization, we network thousands of power producers, consumers, and storage assets and put them on the markets with help from our power traders. Even small assets have an important role to play in this economic landscape, contributing to a more democratic energy sector.” 

Hendrik Sämisch and Jochen Schwill, founders and CEOs of Next Kraftwerke
