Next Kraftwerke was awarded with the Intersolar Award 2017 for PV forecasting and power trading through the Virtual Power Plant. For more than ten years, the internationally renowned Intersolar Award honors innovation in the field of photovoltaics with a focus on technology and services. Especially the way how Next Kraftwerke handles the forecast and monitoring of assets played a major role in the evaluation of the jury. The jury believes that this model will have a great impact on how the regulatory framework of future energy markets will be shaped.
Johannes Päffgen, CTRO/ Head of Energy Trading at Next Kraftwerke:
“I am very happy about the Intersolar Award 2017 for Next Kraftwerke. The award shows that our practice to combine continuous intraday trading with live data from the virtual power plant and continuous forecast generation by our own forecasting algorithms is convincing to both the market and professional audiences – and to the photovoltaics sector as well.”
