Deep dive aFRR | Thu., August 13, 3 pm (UTC+2)

Balancing Services are reactive short-term means to level out frequency deviations in the power grid. Balancing Services (sometimes also called control reserve) is one out of many ancillary services that system operators have to provide a secure power supply.

In this webinar, we will focus on one of them - aFRR, automatic Frequency Restoration Reserve. We will discuss technological requirements connected with delivering this product as well as regulation in the European Union, especially in the context of PICASSO project (Platform for the International Coordination of Automated Frequency Restoration and Stable System Operation).

Additionally, we will shortly describe the differences between aFRR and other two balancing service products primary (FCR) and tertiary (mFRR) control power. Furthermore, we will show examples of successful integration of distributed renewables delivering ancillary services using technology of a Virtual Power Plant. Taking example of Germany, we will present a theoretical revenue calculation that will illustrate the potential of the aFRR product in central-western Europe.

How VPPs integrate renewables into the energy system | Wed., April 29, 9:30 a.m. (UTC+2)

Higher shares of renewables in electricity mix require perfect coordination of their energy generation to provide a cost-efficient and secure electricity supply and guarantee a stable grid. Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) allow to aggregate thousands of electricity producers, consumers and storage units and to control them according to signals from the wholesale market and system operators. This webinar shows how energy systems with increasing share of renewables can profit from advanced VPP technology as well as how asset owners and VPP operator capitalise on supporting energy transition by protecting the grid against the fluctuations associated with volatile energy sources. Our experts will break down essential regulatory challenges for the future energy world and contextualize the role of VPPs in it.

VPP Business Models | Tue., April 21, 3:30 p.m. (UTC+2)

Virtual Power Plants aggregate distributed energy resources (DER) in almost all parts of the world. However, they take different forms depending on the market environment and addresses different challenges of the transitioning energy industry. The webinar presents different Business Models renewable energy companies can adopt and shows how the same technology fundamentals can deliver different value propositions for different types of assets and market actors.
