As a subsidiary of Shell and a specialist in short-term trading, Next Kraftwerke has assumed balancing group responsibility and direct trading of the electricity. With this PV addition to its portfolio, Next Kraftwerke is further expanding its position as Germany's largest PV power trader. With a PV share of more than 6000 MW, Next Kraftwerke is currently the largest trader of PV electricity in Germany and has many years of experience, particularly in the placement of solar power on the day-ahead and intraday markets.
As the balancing group manager, Next Kraftwerke is also responsible for curtailment, dispatch and redispatch measures. Next Kraftwerke also ensures close monitoring and continuous control of the PV park in order to quickly identify unforeseen events and control the PV park accordingly.
The Witznitz energy park has been producing electricity since the end of 2023. "The MoveOn Energy Group, together with HANSAINVEST Real Assets, has developed and built the plant on a former lignite mining site without state subsidies. This shows once again how competitive PV systems have become on the electricity markets and that an investment pays off," says Hendrik Sämisch, CEO of Next Kraftwerke. With a total capacity of over 600 MW, the site in central Germany is one of the largest solar parks in Europe.
