The companies are aiming at establishing the first Virtual Power Plant in Kazakhstan using Next Kraftwerke‘s VPP-as-a-service NEMOCS.

NEMOCS can network thousands of decentralized units in order to optimize their operation. It processes data in real time, leading to benefits such as improved generation forecasting. Additionally, NEMOCS issues operational commands if needed to steer a fleet of thousands of networked units to follow price or grid signals.

Kazakhstan will see a larger percentage of renewables in their energy system within the next years. Using NEMOCS, Energy on Track wants to improve forecasts and enable balancing through decentralized units.

Next Kraftwerke

Next Kraftwerke operates one of the biggest Virtual Power Plants in Europe. By utilizing the full potential of digitalization, the company networks thousands of energy-producing and energy-consuming units in the Virtual Power Plant “Next Pool”. Through its technology and trading, clients are able to produce and consume electricity when prices are best for them. By trading their aggregated power 24/7 on different energy spot markets the Virtual Power Plant also makes a substantial contribution to stabilizing the grid by smartly distributing the power generated and consumed by the individual units in times of peak load.
