Virtual Power Plant Next Pool grows by 100 MW from Polish wind farms


Elektrownie Next signed a deal to forecast and trade 100MW of wind power from Polish operator EOLOS Polska Sp. Zo.o., a subsidiary of Terna Energy S.A. Starting January 1st, 2018, EOLOS will receive a fixed price for one year, while Elektrownie Next takes over forecasting, trading at the Polish energy exchange TGE, and balancing risks. The windmills, that consist of nearly 100 percent of the EOLOS wind portfolio, will also be networked to the central control system of Next Kraftwerke to enhance forecasting by the use of live data. With the opening of the polish power market for renewable energy plants with a capacity over 500 kW and the discontinuation of the URE energy price system by the beginning of 2018, power producers will need to look for new opportunities to sell their power profitably and maintain financially viable. Elektrownie Next, part of Next Kraftwerke, one of largest Virtual Power Plants in Europe, is specialized in the trading energy on short- and long-term power markets. Elektrownie Next offers dedicated products and strategies for power producers of all sizes.
