Dispatch & Optimization
Higher revenues and more grid efficiency by schedule optimization
The volatile feed-in of wind and solar energy has a strong effect on power exchanges: Market prices fluctuate significantly. As an operator of steerable assets, you can take advantage of this. By producing energy when prices are high and letting your systems rest when prices are low, you can boost the revenues of your plants and support a sustainable utilization of the grid.
Our software-solution NEMOCS is a perfect tool for dispatching: It enables you to control a large number of assets and helps you to run optimized schedules exactly. Changes to the operating schedule are possible on short notice.

Case Study: Trading on short-term markets
In many countries, deviations between forecasted and actual feed-in can be compensated by trading on short-term energy markets. This is exactly what we do as a certified power trader with our 2,000 MW portfolio of PV in Germany. First, we trade the assets on the day-ahead market based on forecasts. The day-ahead forecast is calculated from weather data and static system data (e.g. inclination angle of the PV module, location, etc.). On the day of the actual feed-in, deviations from the day-ahead forecast occur. If this deviation persists, it would have to be eliminated by balancing energy, which would be charged to the responsible party.
In order to minimize the need for costly balancing energy, our traders continuously try to close the gap between day-ahead forecasts and actual feed-in. Live data from our networked assets is essential for this, as it brings the forecast closer to real generation. In this way it is not only possible to minimize balancing energy costs, but also to support grid stability.
